Butternut squash has a smooth beige skin with slightly bulbous base. Typically weighing between 2 lb. (900 g) and 3 lb. (1.4 kg), this winter squash has an orange-yellow flesh with a sweet, slightly nutty flavour. To prepare, simply cut off both ends of the squash and peel before cutting squash lengthwise in half. Scoop out and discard the seeds and stringy fibres, then cut squash into cubes or slices as desired. If desired, squash can be cut up in advance. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 24 hours before using as desired.
This satisfying side dish can be prepared ahead of time. Spread squash mixture onto bottom of prepared baking dish but do not top with prepared stuffing. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, prepare stuffing as directed, then sprinkle over squash mixture and bake in 350ºF oven 40 to 45 min. or until heated through.
