Default Butternut squash

Ok, since I bought this acorn squash, I keep wanting to expand my squash palette. So, I got interested in butternut squash. I wonder how it is different in taste than acorn squash. (I have had acorn squash twice already, I like it that much LOL). So any advice on cooking butternut? Is it sweeter or more juicy? What are the qualities?

Ooh, I LOVE butternut squash...I generally can't resist making creamy soup out of it, but I love to just chop it up and roast it with a little salt and pepper too. My ex's family scoops out a lot of the meat, mixes it with some ground meat and seasonings, and stuffs the shell with the mixture and bakes it. I'm getting hungry just htinking about it...

It's a bit sweet and almost nutty tasting, similar to pumpkin actually.

Butternut squash is one of my favorite foods!!! This is a really good recipe for butternut squash mac and cheese: https://www.marthastewart.com/337716/...utternut-squas

It is also really good in chili or in enchiladas! Or like Cathy said, slow roasted- for breakfast, lunch, and dinner

You can do loads with butternut. It was one of the first veg I weaned the kids onto when they were babies. Roast, mash etc. You can do it the same as you did the acorn too.

I like that mac and cheese recipe too, I think I'll try that!

OK, I bought a nice-size butternut squash today. Can't wait to try it
Today, I will venture into egg plant parmesan making

I like it roast, chuck in some red onion ( in quarters), salt, pepper and some mixed herbs - cook for around 40 mins.... yummy.

Yes, I will probably make it savory this time. I roasted the acorn squash with brown sugar and butter, and it was delicious.
By the way, Liz, how did your colharabi go?

I like to halve the squash and cook cut side down on foil for 30 mins. Then turn over sprinkle with honey, salt and pepper. Sometimes I grate some fresh nutmeg on also. Then cook another 30 mins or until done.
