Baked Butternut Squash with Cranberries

My sister-in-law introduced this recipe to us last Thanksgiving. It’s a simple combination that I’d never have thought of on my own: butternut squash, cranberries, and onions. Season lightly, bake, and voila! You have seasonal side dish that would taste good any time of the year.
