I Love You Just the Way You Are

I am embarrassed to say that I've never cooked butternut squash before. I always felt that it was one of those Martha Stewart vegetables that shlumps like me didn't get to try. But put it on sale at PathMark and I'm right there. As I was browsing recipes for it I realized I sort of resent that any vegetable with a slightly sweet taste to it usually gets drowned in butter and brown sugar. Even though it is a great combo, they don't need their natural flavor masked so much. But I'm one to put salt on fruit instead of sugar too. I found a recipe for spicy roasted squash with smoked Paprika and Balsamic vinegar. I added a bit of my Cajun Seasoning and the squash still caramelized a bit on the edges. Tasted spectacular! No need for sugar. Thanks Kalyn, whoever you are!
