Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Great recipe and very easy to make. I made this as written except I used Splenda brown sugar substitute, fat - free half half and 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder. I also added a pinch of nutmeg for additional depth of flavor. Roasting the butternut squash and onions really makes this recipe delicious. I did put foil in the baking sheet for easy cleanup. and used packaged fresh butternut squash from Costco since I hate peeling whole butternut squash.
