Butternut squash is a fall favorite. Between all the ways you can roast it, and the various methods it can be turned into soup, there are more than enough ways to get your fix. But come Thanksgiving, the holiday that crowns most of our favorite fall foods, butternut squash gets forgotten about because the allure of all those other enticing (and less nutritious) sides is too great.
