"Its good, but not AS good as the other reviews make it out to be. It needs more seasoning. Salt and pepper made a world of difference, but there was still something missing--nutmeg maybe? Not sure. Also, 1 cup of walnuts was way too much. I stopped adding around 3/4 cup, will probably use a half cup next time. I'm looking forward to solving the missing seasoning mystery. Will make again."

"This sauce was creamy, flavorful, and easy to make. I cut the heavy whipping cream in half so that I could really taste the squash! I skipped the nuts to make it more toddler-friendly for my daughter as well."

"Delicious! I used spinach & ricotta cheese raviolis and skipped adding the baby spinach. I did add a handful of dehydrated spinach for color and 2 tablespoons dry sherry to the sauce. It's a keeper!"

"This recipe is delicious! I made it for my family on Christmas Eve night and they absolutely loved it! I used fresh winter squash because I could not find frozen winter squash. Absolutely awesome! !!!! I will make this again and again..."

"This is very delicious! It could easily be seen on a menu of a great Italian restaurant. Not every grocery store sells frozen winter squash (it is pureed)- I had to look around and finally found it at Schnucks, Birds Eye brand. This dish needs more salt for our taste- would probably add 1 tsp next time. I did not add the walnuts because it was served as a side dish but could easily be an entree with the nuts. I also purchased frozen cheese ravioli because it was so much cheaper than the refrigerated. I boiled it according to directions on package and then added to the squash sauce. Also used fat-free skim milk instead of heavy cream to lighten it up and it was fine! Will make ove and over again!"
