Both. My mother makes amazing pumpkin soup. The recipe secret is to add a bit of butternut squash to give it a sweet taste. mmm

I like the flavor of both, but butternut squash is more of a year-round thing

Pumpkin is REALLY hard to work with, in my opinion. Too much work!

I cooked with pumpkin last night, and I have to admit, its definitely not as flavorful as butternut squash.

Definitely butternut squash. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin...

I prefer spaghetti squash. I know, I know, not really the same ballpark...

Why do I think this is a trick question? :ponder: Well, I've never had butternut squash and pumpkins are a pain to deal with. So I'm going to say acorn squash is my favorite.

Pumpkin, but it HAS to be the right variety! Queensland Blue and Crown Prince are my favourites!

i had to say neither right now because i don't really have a lot of experience with either ingredient - so i'd be afraid that i'd mess it up. if i knew more about cooking with either i would be able to choose a bit better.

I looove anything with pumpkin!! I'm making my whole family wait a while to carve our pumpkins (way after Halloween!) so that I can make our Thanksgiving pumpkin pies with real, fresh pumpkin!!
