MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 27, 2014

"This was not what I expected. No one cared for it. It was to mushy. Came home and looked up other versions of what is suppose to be like Kenny Roger's Roasters casserole and noticed this one asks for 3 pounds of squash. Others 3 cups. Could it be this one has a typing error? Just to much squash and mushy."

"This tastes really good, almost like pumpkin pie. It is more of a dessert than a main dish. Next time, I will add 1 cup of walnuts."
