Butternut squash is an often overlooked side dish that is easy to make and pairs well with most dishes. There are a few different ways to make mashed butternut squash, but usually I like to make it in the oven by cubing the squash and cooking it in water or broth right in the oven with whatever protein I am preparing. It can be cooked at any range of temperatures from 325-425, just adjust the cooking time depending on how hot your oven is. Then mash everything right in the baking dish and serve.
