Butternut Squash Shepherd’s Pie

Easy and yummy butternut squash recipe. Try this simple Shepherd's pie using butternut squash. | www.foxyfolksy.comIt’s squash and pumpkin time of the year! and this time I got a butternut squash to experiment with! To be honest, I never thought there could be so many different kinds of squash. I mean we do have squash in the Philippines of course, but I only know one kind and we call it “Kalabasa”. I have never known or seen so many varieties of squash until I came to Germany. Big, small, round and long some are edible and some serve only as decor…(I am not sure if they are not edible too)… Easy and yummy butternut squash recipe.

I usually get the Hokkaido squash like for making this creamy pumpkin soup but I was actually curious how butternut squash taste like or if there is a difference in texture, so I got myself one to find out. I was searching the internet for a good recipe for butternut squash and I saw that some would roast or bake it, which gave me this idea. Armin really likes my Shepherd’s Pie and was actually requesting for it. So the idea was to use the butternut squash instead of mashed potatoes. And this is the result!
