Pretty as a picture.

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…!
