Parmesan Butternut Squash Gratin

First, peel, halve and seed your butternut squash.


Cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices.


Arrange in a greased pan and brush with a butter and garlic mixture.


Sprinkle with more butter and garlic, salt and pepper, breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.  Then, put it in the oven.  I packed mine really tight, but I think it would be better with less squash.  Then the gratin would spread more evenly over everything.


Mmmm, scrumptious!  Garnish with fresh parsley.
