  • I really liked this recipe. it was quite fast about 30-45mins. I cubed the squash and started it in the microwave, patted it dry before adding oil and roasting. I can tell it will be better tomorrow. Adding a few chilies for some heat to go with the sweet might just be a good thing -next time :) - 1/24/13

  • My boyfriend and I loved this! He ate the leftovers the next day and raved about it. It's definitely a keeper. It's a little sweet so I think I would add something to give it some heat next time. - 6/18/12
