1 1/2 tablespoons light stick butter
1 1/4 cups chopped sweet onion (about 1 medium)
1 (1 1/2-pound) butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 cup water


Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, and cook 5 minutes or until tender and golden. Add squash and remaining 4 ingredients.

Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until squash is tender.


Microwave the whole butternut squash about 1 minute on HIGH so that it's softer and easier to cut.
