Taste: Warm and sweet. I love this dish because all the flavors compliment each other beautifully.
Texture: Endlessly tender and syrupy.
Ease: The most difficult and time-consuming part of this recipe is preparing the butternut squash. If you are making this for Thanksgiving I would suggest peeling, seeding, and chopping and storing in the fridge a day ahead of time that way the dish comes together in less than 20 minutes on T-day.
Appearance: The squash has a beautiful glisten thanks to the syrup that makes each piece look like a gem.
Pros: Easy, simple, light.
Cons: Just the fact that butternut squash is a little high-maintenance.
Would I make this again? Definitely next autumn.
