Recipe Type: Squash, Vegetables
Yields: 2 to 4 servings
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 60 min


1 (2 to 3 pounds) butternut squash
1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place whole squash onto an ungreased baking sheet, and prick in a few places with a sharp knife.

Bake, uncovered, approximately 60 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven.
