"This is a very simple side dish of butternut squash flavored with thyme that can go with anything! You can also think of it as a great substitute for a starch. It only takes a little bit of flavorful cheese to bring out the flavor of the squash!" — kris

I can't rate this very well. I myself could only take a small bite....In that bite it was not right and was off putting. While 2 of my daughter's tried in and said it was sweet like an apricot, I was like what? the flavors that are combined with the squash, are not up to par with the pairing with the squash. The squash's sweetness is overpowering and you couldn't taste anything else. I didn't like this at all and neither did my husband and son. Sorry followed to a T and won't be made again, my apologies.
I thought this squash was pretty good. It is only the second time I have cooked butternut squash (the first was in a lasagna), so I don't have a lot to compare it to. However, I thought the flavor was nice and I liked the texture that roasting gave to it. I myself did not find it to be overly sweet and even my husband who doesn't generally like any kind of squash said it was okay. The hardest part of this recipe was peeling and chopping the squash; I might get the pre-chopped stuff they have at the store next time.
