This just wasn't a pretty dinner. However, we can't always judge things by their appearance. Disfigured and gloppy as it was, it was quite delicious.
I originally got this squash recipe from the Hungry Girl website and I believe she uses Laughing Cow swiss cheese which I have yet to try so I just used the leftover mozzerella cheese we had from making pizza's last weekend. It was very good. I pretty much love anything with butternut squash!
I would recommend cutting the onions smaller or cooking them with the squash a bit because they weren't quite cooked enough and it was quite onion-y tasting. We like onion so we were okay with that.
