    I cooked the squash in the micro for 3 minutes on high to make peeling and slicing wayyy easier. I used a smaller enameled Iron gratin dish so I couldn’t use all he squash or apples. I subbed swerve brown sweetener, which worked perfectly. I did increase the butter drizzle because I didn’t think 2Tb covered enough of the squash/apple dish. I baked uncovered for about 50 minutes. Very Delicious!!

    This is a delicious and easy recipe. I reduced the brown sugar to 1/4 cup and added 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg. I used Granny Smith apples cut in large chunks and didn't peel them. Just before serving I drizzled 2 Tbsp. maple syrup over the squash and apples. My kids loved the dish and they are taking the leftovers in their school lunches today!

    So yummy. I didn't find it too sweet. It was tender and not dry. I will make it again.

    This was very yummy. I suppose the flavor somewhat depends on the apple that is used. I used a somewhat tart Honeycrisp. I will make this again.
