This simple butternut squash recipe is pure comfort food in a dish. Sliced, roasted and filled with Camembert cheese, this is a healthy version of baked potato with cheese!
This looks and tastes delicious! The sweetness of the butternut squash and the creamy Camembert goes so well with the garlic bringing together these two for a perfect combination. It looks impressive but is so easy to make. The whole dish, including the skin can be munched too. Kinda like a baked potato when you wolfed down the crispy skin. Wow your friends at dinner/supper/Thanksgiving/any other holiday/Come Dine With Me/family gathering/trying to impress the in-laws etc...!
