"I made this for Thanksgiving and the family loved it! They asked if I would make it for Christmas too. I used Hubbard squash on Thanksgiving and it will work well with any winter squash that is available. I orginally got this recipe from my mother-in-law. And I lost it again, thank you for the recipe archive!"
