    Excellent! But use pumpkin spice and a splash of orange juice to give it an extra special zing! No red pepper flakes for me!

    Delicious! But I used regular butter instead of coconut oil.

    Was wonderful!!! Husband & kids agree will be a regular side for us. I did cook a raw butternut squash in oven 60 min at 415 degrees before making this. Then added seasoning per recipe plus Mrs Dash. Sprayed w/ vegetable oil when grease was absorbed to flip & took about 20 min to caramelize.

    Perfect! I add honey with it and it was so sweet. Easy and quick to do, really ideal if you want to eat vegetables.

    Wonderful every time, pre-cut is worth it.

    Not a very good recipe because it’s too general. The squash needs to be cubed pretty small, maybe 1/2-inch cubes in order to tenderize in 10-12 minutes but the recipe doesn’t specify that. High heat meant my squash browned before it was done. I ended up just sticking it in the oven and letting it roast. This is a basic recipe. Will require cook’s personal modifications.

    It was very refreshing to have something different. I added garlic powder to give it a punch. I enjoyed it.

    The caramelized squash turned out great! Added a bit of rosemary on top at the end as well and the red pepper flakes were a perfect touch!

    Yumm-o! I used olive oil instead and a little bit of a heavy hand on the salt but it’s tasty!

    im only giving a 4 because i didnt follow the recipe all the way. i also added fresh squeezed OJ from half an orange and i think that made the flavor so wonderful. cant wait to make again

    I really liked this. I cooked in the oven for around 30 minutes, instead of the stove.

    Replaced Pepper flakes with VERY light dusting of cayenne pepper. Family loved it.

    I think that it turned out pretty good but I think that it needed more time for it to get tendered because some of the pieces were still too chewy.
    Pretty good... next time will try with a spicy honey drizzle
