If you've got a tasty squash, you've got a tasty squash. This is definitely the best way to cook that squash, and will give it a buttery, salty edge without detracting at all from its squashiness flavor. I could see taking the roasted squash and pureeing it, if you wanted to go that route, but it's really good as is. If you have a not-tasty squash, this recipe will probably be horrible, and that's just all there is to it!
