MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2012

"This recipe was Ok but not great. I thought it tasted a little like medicine and was mushy."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 28, 2010

"Next time I will try to cut the slices thicker - cut mine with a regular vegetable peeler & got too "mushy". The family agreed I should try this again because it tasted good. I also used Mrs. Dash Herbs instead of thyme because I didn't have any and left out the salt."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2009

"This had really nice flavor, but it was sort of a pain slicing the squash into little ribbons. Sure it looked nice but it would have tasted equally good if I'd sliced it normally, and it would have been a lot quicker."
