Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash (2 1/2 lb)
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Progresso™ panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  2. In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Reduce heat to low. Add garlic; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until garlic is soft and butter is infused with garlic flavor. Do not let butter brown.
  3. In small bowl, mix bread crumbs, cheese and 1 tablespoon of the butter-garlic mixture.
