Butternut squash is a fall favorite. Try one of these top five recipes that are filled with classic autumn flavors from Food Network chefs.

5. Beef and Butternut Squash Stew - This stick-to-your-ribs stew is perfect for a chilly fall day. Lots of chunky vegetables, along with the beef, make it hearty enough for a one-pot meal. Serve with crusty bread alongside.

4. Roasted Butternut Squash Salad With Warm Cider Vinaigrette - For a salad full of fall flavors, serve roasted butternut squash on top of baby arugula with a few shavings of nutty Parmesan cheese.

3. Butternut Squash Lasagna - Try this meat-free lasagna Giada-style with crumbled amaretti cookies, tender butternut squash and lots of melted cheese.

2. Butternut Squash Soup - Claire's squash soup has an exotic flavor, thanks to the addition of curry powder.
