"This was so good and healthy. It had a light fresh, sweet taste. It is a great dish for the holidays! This is a great change from the sweet potatoes and marshmallow dish."

"This has delicious flavor! I made several changes based on what I had on hand. I omitted the sweet potato since my squash was large. Next time I would NOT boil the squash before baking so that it stays a bit firmer by the end. I sauteed two onions in butter with fresh sprigs of thyme and add that to the baking dish. I also used three apples instead of two and left the skin on. This is a great base to build on!"
