  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the squash for 10 mins until golden, turning the cubes now and then. Add the garlic and fry for 1 min until softened. Add 300ml water, the grated Parmesan, chilli flakes and lemon zest. Stir well, turn the heat down and cook for 3-4 mins. Mash well and season to taste.

Maybe it was my lack of skill, but it turned out a bit dry and a bit bland. Also, the whole/mash cubed thing also proved a problem. It didn't look particularly great!

This looks nice and the coments above are good. My only querie would be the recipe says to mash the squash when softened with the other engrediants, only in the picture the squash is still in cubes, im a bit puzzled

This was delicious - made it with spinach and ricotta tortellini and it was easy and super yummy. The combination of the butternut squash "sauce" and the sage crumbs was wonderful!

This is delicious and very simple. I used a pumpkin ravioli which was fabulous! I'll definately making this again. A nice simple supper.
