"This was great, and so easy! I added somw walnuts into the cavity after pouring in the saue. My daughter is looking forward to having this again!"

"Had this for supper. Enjoyed. Used real maple syrup so I think it was a little sweet. Next time I make this I will take a fork and prick the squash so the glaze has a chance to penetrate the squash."
