I've collected, edited and digitized recipes since my first PC... if you'd like pages of recipes, pop me an e-mail. My formatting doesn't translate well into these Messages, but I think you can figure out the following:
Vege, Squash/Butternut Butternut Squash Puff 3 cups butternut squash, cooked & mashed ½ tsp grated lemon rind ¼ cup evaporated milk/cream ¼ tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper 2 Tbsp butter 2 Tbsp flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 eggs, beaten 1 Tbsp grated orange rind Combine all ingredients and turn into a 1 quart buttered casserole. Place in a 9” square pan of hot water. Bake at 350F for 40-50 minutes or until firm in the center. Serve with turkey or pork. Great for a holiday side dish. 4 servings

In a large saucepan, saute leeks and thyme in butter until tender. Add pulp, broth, s&p; simmer 20 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Puree in a blender; return to pan and heat through. Spoon into squash shells. Place sour cream in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. Pipe a coil of sour cream over squash filling.

I made this the other night, it was super good. Spicy Roasted Butternut Squash with Smoked Sweet Paprika http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2011/02/recip e-for-c.html The only change I'd make is less oil if your squash is on the smaller side. Also I used regular paprika and it was fine.
That site also has a ton of other recipes for butternut squash that look good too, you can just search for "butternut" in the search box on the right side.
I use it in any recipe that calls for sweet potatoes.
Indian foods, African foods, quick breads, casseroles, side dishes especially for pork and chicken.

What are your favorite butternut squash recipes?
The reason I am posting this is because we have loads of butternut squash, but I get tired of making nothing but soup out of it. Preferably something without meat, but nothing that will take me 5 hours to accomplish
