Dang, that sounds and looks delicious! But I discovered last summer that my hands no longer have the strength to split and cut up butternut squash. I had to saw and saw at it . . . Never again. I'm going to have to get someone to do that for me from time to time and when I get that arranged I'll try this recipe. Thanks!

That's a shame, but I understand. It takes a lot of muscle to split open a butternut. I use the biggest knife I have-- and make sure it's freshly sharpened. Then I cut the ends off by sticking the point in and wiggling the knife as I rotate the squash. Once the ends are off I can stand it up and split it down the middle, again by wiggling the knife through it.
It's one of those things where you really have to rock the knife to cut it.
