This turned out very delicious! I've never cooked or ate a Butternut Squash before and neither had my test subjects. Everyone really enjoyed it. I gave it 4 spoons for difficulty with the Squash (see below). Other than the few set backs, it's an easy recipe.
The squash is a pain to peal and it's best to use gloves when handling it. I had a reaction to it on my left hand only and it was dead skin peeling off, apparently this is somewhat common. I used olive oil to moisturize and it seemed to help, but was sensitive for a couple days. Also use the hint and microwave or bake the squash so you have an easier time cutting it.
I didn't use a dutch oven, just a large spaghetti pot with lid and it worked just as well.
it was better the next day for sure and the chives are a must!
