This side is simple and fabulous. The cooking is mostly hands-off, and the prep is easy. Serve the tender butternut squash in large pieces to catch every last bit of the honey butter drizzle.
Serves 8 (serving size: 3 pieces)
1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Place squash halves, cut sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place honey and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 30 seconds or until butter melts; stir to combine. Brush half of honey mixture over cut sides of squash; reserve remaining honey mixture. Sprinkle squash with salt and pepper. Bake at 400° for 1 hour or until tender.
3. Carefully place squash, cut sides up, on cutting board. Halve squash lengthwise; cut each half crosswise into thirds. Place squash on a platter. Heat reserved butter mixture in microwave at HIGH 20 seconds. Drizzle remaining butter mixture over squash; sprinkle evenly with pecans and parsley.
