The family liked this. I should have read the reviews first - I agree with decreasing sugar, as it was a bit too sweet, but it was different and savory. Submitted by:

Delicious! I followed the advice of others and cut the oil in half and sugar in half. I think the sugar could have gone down even more with no ill effects.

The sweet sauce and pumpkin are such a nice complement! I can't wait to make it again.

Oh my gosh, this is good. Made it with butternut squash. Only now do I realize that I forgot to add the sugar--but my dinner guests & I loved loved loved it. The yogurt & the mint are fabulous touches. I expect to make it a regular part of my cooking repertoire! Submitted by:

I modified this slightly - used half the oil and only 2 tablespoons of sugar - and doubled the ginger (because we LOVE ginger).

It was AMAZING! I will certainly make this again. I'm just sad I won't be able to get fresh pumpkin for this year around!

Loved it. DH said he was shocked that he liked it too. I used butternut squash and pumpkin, 2TB sugar and I added a can of diced tomatoes Submitted by:

Yum Yum YUM! I made this tonight for my grandmother and I. I used sweet potato instead of squash, and greek yogurt. It would probably be just as good with less sugar - but I would make it again either way. Submitted by:
