Vitamin A is the big nutrient butternut squash is known for. Vitamin A helps eyesight, maintain skin integrity and reduces the risk of certain types of cancer. Butternut squash is also high in fiber and B-complex vitamins
Now, as good for you as butternut squash is, I have a terrible habit of drenching it in browned butter or stuffing it with sausage, making the entire dish less than healthy. So, for this post, I went out of my way to come up with a healthier version.

The amounts are not very specific because it really just depends upon the size of your squash, but I will give you some guidelines.
