After our baked four-cheese garlic spaghetti squash became so popular (thanks to all our readers!), we decided to give the same treatment to one of our favorite seasonal fare: butternut squash! With the holidays around the corner, this dish will perfect on your table center to impress your guests. The butternut squash is stuffed with four cheese, garlic and spinach then baked in the oven. It’s delicious and incredibly easy to prepare–without mentioning the minimal clean-up!

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F(200°C). Scrub the outside of the squash clean and cut each in half down the middle from the stem to the root end. Scoop out the seeds and scrape a bit of the flesh with a melon baller, leaving a nice border all the way around. Sprinkle each half with salt and pepper.

2. In a large bowl, combine minced garlic, heavy cream with 1/2 cup vegetable broth, cheese and spinach. Mix well. Divide the mixture into each halves, then top with additional cheese and sprinkle with additional pepper, fresh thyme and red chili flakes.

3. Roast in the oven for 40 to 50 minutes, depending on the thickness of your squash, or until the flesh of the butternut squash is very tender when poked with a fork. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
