I did not have Chutney, but instead used pineapple jelly and added red pepper. Everyone seemed to like it!!

I DO NOT like acorn squash, usually. My husband's grandmother used to make roasted acorn squash for him, so it's very special to him. I saw this and filed away as something I would make to surprise him, and it was actually delicious! Definitely a keeper.

Oh my goodness, this was wonderful! Loved the mango chutney mixture! I've made it twice in the past few weeks, and I'll definitely be making it again.

This is sooo good! My family loved it and will make a repeat performance at next year's Thanksgiving dinner. Even those who might not like squash may like this. Didn't even need to add sugar.

I made this recipe with some acorn squash that I had cooked ahead of time and had taken out of the shell. I put the squash into small casseroles, made an indentation in the center, and added the filling. This is a fantastic recipe....very tasty. I will make this again.
