Very tasty way to make butternut squash. We enjoyed the addition of the sage and I, too, added some brown sugar and butter to the dish along with the garlic, s & p. Very nice addition of our vegetarian dinner.

Can you say, DELICIOUS! Awesome way to have your squash as it is very different than the usual. Because of this, it is worthy of serving it for a gourmet meal or at a fine restaurant. Because my buttercup squash was just-a-touch over the hill, I added a bit of brown sugar to help it along. I also added some salt and black pepper to bring out the natural taste, otherwise followed as directed. It's a DO AGAIN. Thank you ImPat for sharing such a lovely. Made it for Billboard Tag Game.

Again another of Pat's great winter comfort food's makes the grade. Loved the combination of the pumpkin, potato and sour cream together, I knew this was going to make for a delicious side to our dinner on a bitterly cold and windy night! The crunch of the sage that was fried in the butter & served on top of the mashed pumpkin/potato mix was just superb! This simple mash made for a fantastic side, which was enjoyed by everyone and was served with homemade rissoles and gravy. Thanks Pat......You did it again mate!
