Butternut squash is one of our favorite fall vegetables, in part because it is so versatile. When the choices at the farmers market start to dwindle, you have to rely on increasingly fewer vegetables to keep things exciting through the cold, and sometimes bleak, months ahead. Butternut squash is your answer. It's sweet enough to go into desserts, but also perfect for savory, warming dishes like soups, gratins and lasagna. Roasted butternut squash can turn a dull salad into a fall stunner, and can lend a vegetarian creaminess to dishes like risotto and ravioli.

If you find yourself hesitating to use butternut squash because you don't want to battle the rock-hard skin, fear not. We've got a life-changing trick for you for peeling butternut squash that requires nothing but a microwave. Once you've got this trick under your belt, butternut squash will be your go-to vegetable this fall and winter.

Besides the classic butternut squash soup, there are so many recipes that highlight this sweet-and-savory favorite. To make sure you never tire of this classic vegetable, we've rounded up 65 butternut squash recipes to carry you through fall and winter.
