I was going to mix it with potato for a Shepherd's pie topping but would quite like to do something different.

Does anyone have any lovely recipes that call for squishy roasted butternut squash?

goats cheese
toasted seeds
roasted bns

or serve with lamb chops & harrissa with or without cous cous

Gnocchi, roasted butternut squash, spinach (just let it wilt over warm gnocchi) goats' cheese and lots of black pepper. Delicious!

Mash and add Dried chilli, sage or thyme, butter and strong cheddar.

You can use as pasta sauce (dada a bit of cream to loosen it)
Or tortellini filling, or just as a side.
It's so lovely

Thought of another I had as a stater on holiday.

Cut into chunks and served with crumbled blue cheese, fresh thyme and roast pecans on top. And some warm fancy bread on the side. And loads of peppery olive oil on top.

Yum! Thank you for the lovely ideas.

Serve as a salad with avocado, cherry tomatoes and a bit of rocket.

Sorry, one more, I've seen jamie oliver do to on the tv, but haven't tried it yet. It looks simple and tasty, but a bit fancy too. I've non idea how to link sorry, but google this if you are interested

Add it to chicken or shrimp risotto

If you haven't seasoned it you can put it in cakes. Can't link here but there's a Simon rimmer recipe on the good food websites for banana, pecan and butternut squash loaf and its really nice.

I second rotolo. It's bloody delicious. But a bit tricky to make. Use fresh lasagne. That's where I failed as only had dry.

Rotolo does sound amazing. That's one to try next time. Have made what you suggested YouMakeMeHappy with cream as a pasta sauce. Looking forward to getting the kids in bed so I can tuck in!

Fill it with cauliflower cheese and bake some more. Had it at a restaurant once and it was amazing! Served with roast potatoes and veg. I really fancy it now!

Well it was halved, not a whole one. If that makes sense.

Another recommendation for JO's rotolo. A big favourite in our house!

Oh you made it! Was it nice? You added the other stuff aswell as cream right?

Lamb and butternut squash is a lovely, lovely combination.

So hungry.

YouMakeMeHappy...made it but couldn't eat it because I was fasting yesterday!

Planning to warm up and add the cream tonight. Only have my younger, non-fussy DCs for tea tonight so will try them with it too!
