I grew up eating this savory butternut squash. This recipe brings me back to Andalusia, Spain. —sorayaaguilar

What You'll Need

I just made this recipe. The flavor is good but there was a lot of broth left after 25 minute. I wonder if the squash should simmer uncovered. I used hubbard squash and cooked uncovered after mashing to remove moisture. Will definitely make again.
