1 1/2 teaspoons salt
(4 to 5 pounds total)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black
6 tablespoons butter, melted
pepper
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400. Cut off and discard the ends of each butternut squash. Peel the squash, cut them in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds. Cut the squash into 1 1/4 to 1 1/2-inch cubes and place them on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the melted butter; then sprinkle with the brown sugar, salt, and pepper. With clean hands, toss all the ingredients together and spread in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast for 45 to 55 minutes, until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize. While roasting, turn the squash a few times with a spatula, to be sure it browns evenly. Taste for seasonings and serve hot.

I got this from the Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network. I sometimes use half butter and half olive oil. This is even eaten by my squash hating husband.
