"This one is hard to rate. . . I made this for friends who adored it, but my husband and I didn't like it as much as just plain apple crisp. The recipe itself is really good.. . the sauce and topping have a wonderful flavor, I just didn't like how I kept tasting squash! (Guess that's what I get for trying to make a dessert with nutritional value.)"

"What an absolutely heavenly dish. I love the way the apples and squash work together and you don't even notice that you are eating squash at all. They belong together like peas and carrots. I will be making this easy and nutricious recipe regularly from now on. I have already shared it with four other people, and can't wait to take it to work. I am very impressed!!"
