Besides soup, what to do with butternut squash?

I have 4 sitting on my counter from the final two weeks of CSA pickups. I am, frankly, stumped.

I am not a fan of sweet squash but welcome any savory ideas for these babies.

  1. I made a delicious pork chop with roasted apples and butternut squash after my fall apple-picking excursion.

          yep, made it for the first time last weekend, it was delicious....I have some leftovers in the freezer for lunches, not the same, but still good on a cold NE day...

        Here is my recipe for roasted sweet potatoes, just sub the butternut for the sweets. I love this savory roasted, tangy dish. I make this for Thanksgiving, you can do ahead and reheat.

        1. Tasty and simple:

          Roasted Butternut Squash

          1 squash, ends and seeds removed, peeled and cut into chunks about 1" square

          Place on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil or melted butter. Sprinle with salt and pepper or a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Roast 1 hour at 350. Enjoy!

          1. roasted, pureed and mixed with gorgonzola for ravioli filling
            roasted, chunked, mixed with cous cous or barley for a warm side dish
            peel, chunk, put in roasting pan with carrots, onions, ginger and chili flakes. put a small can of pineapple juice in the pan. cover and roast til soft, then remove the foil and run under flame to brown the veggies.
