Butternut Squash Cooking Question

rjlebed | Mar 17, 2011 10:07 AM

I LOVE butternut squash and have finally figured out an easy way to actually cut into the dang things! But, for some reason, in spite of having tried several ways, I have been unable to figure out how to prepare it so that it is not slimy on the outside. I have cut it up into pieces, placed it on a baking sheet in a high heat (425) oven until it gets soft. I have sprayed it with a little olive oil and salt a pepper. But, when it is finally soft there is no crispy outside at all. For some reason restaurants seem to be able to dry out the skin better. I have even tried to put it under the broiler for a few minutes but without success........ Any thoughts?
