"This is a delicious and easy recipe. I reduced the brown sugar to 1/4 cup and added 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg. I used Granny Smith apples cut in large chunks and didn't peel them. Just before serving I drizzled 2 Tbsp. maple syrup over the squash and apples. My kids loved the dish and they are taking the leftovers in their school lunches today!"

"This was very yummy. I suppose the flavor somewhat depends on the apple that is used. I used a somewhat tart Honeycrisp. I will make this again."
