The Capital Grille Restaurant Recipe
3 tablespoons butter
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1 large butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1 inch cubes

In a large saucepan, heat the butter over medium. Add the onion, garlic, thyme, cinnamon, and cayenne. Season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
