The Amazing Butternut Squash

I am sure, I am not the only one, who finds wonderful ways to cook squash, in particular butternut squash.  Eating chunks of it plain is good, adding a little something can be better and when I say little, that is what I mean.

I took a peeled squash and separated the part with the seeds from the narrow part.  I then, using my peeler, made thin strips of squash from the outside of the part with seeds (the base?).  All I did, after that, was to put them in a bowl with about two tablespoons of maple syrup. 

The result was pure deliciousness.   
Quick, Easy, Delicious 


1 butternut squash half, peeled in long strips
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


Grease a small baking dish.
Mix maple syrup and squash strips.
Place in baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until squash is completely cooked.
