grilled butternut squash

2 small  butternut squash
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbs butter (melted)
2 tsp grated orange peel
4 tbsp. maple syrup
1/4 cup chopped pecans

gas grill for direct heat. cut four pieces of heavy-duty foil. Cut each squash lengthwise in half; remove seeds. place squash half, cut side up, on each piece of foil. sprinkle with salt.
in small bowl, mix butter, orange peel and 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup. brush over squash halves. fold foil over squash so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again.
cover and grill packets over medium-low heat 50 to 60 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after 25 minutes, until squash is tender. 
sprinkle pecans over squash; drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup.

simple and fantastic.

love sent, xo
