This is one of my favorite ways to make butternut squash. It’s a warm salad. It is from Wegmans, our great local supermarket. Their recipes call for using their brands of all of the ingredients. You don’t need to get anything prepackaged. The basting oil can be olive oil or grapeseed, with garlic added.
