This recipe look delicious! As a time saver, I might "cheat" and use canned pumpkin when I make this one! :)

well @ start cooking I use butternut squash variety.This variety is very popular because it's so easy to use. It's small enough to serve a normal family without leftovers, and the rind is thin enough to peel off with a vegetable peeler. As an added bonus, the flavor is sweet, moist, and pleasantly nutty.
