"Good! I used another reviewers recommendation and used cinnamon instead of salt! (although my DH did think they were sweet potatoes and said hmmm...these don't taste like what you made a few weeks ago! I had to let him know it was squash not potatoes LOL)."

"This had very good flavor. I loved the nutmeg and it paired well with a little pepper and salt. I added a little chicken broth to make it a little creamier. The family loved this"
