  • 4 ½ pounds butternut squash or pumpkin

  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme (or ½ teaspoon dried)
  • 1 cups pecans, toasted
  • 1 cup crumbled Roquefort (or other blue cheese, such as gorgonzola)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Halve the squash or pumpkin and scoop out the seeds. Cut away the rind and cut flesh into 1-inch cubes.
