Put a citrus twist on squash. Butter, orange marmalade and spices are the flavor secrets.
large (3 to 3 1/2 lb) butternut squash, cut into 8 pieces
cup butter or margarine, melted
cup orange marmalade
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground nutmeg
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place squash, cut sides up, in baking dish.
Cover with foil; bake 45 minutes. Sprinkle with salt. In small bowl, mix butter, marmalade, cinnamon and nutmeg; brush over squash. Bake 20 to 30 minutes longer or until glazed and tender.
When you're shopping, just remember that butternut is the squash shaped like a peanut. You could also use the dark green buttercup squash instead.
