Butternut squash isn't just delicious, it's also highly nutritiuous. It's high in fiber, potassium, vitamins C and A, as well as magnesium, making it a perfect addition to your menu. I love it roasted and thrown into a salad, or mashed and used to filled homemade ravioli. Mmmmm...now I'm getting hungry!
