    Great recipe! I only used 1 apple and 2T Splenda brown sugar blend and 1T Land O'Lakes light butter. It knocked the calorie count down but it's still great. I also was in at ime pinch so I microwaved the squash for 4 minutes and then added the apples and microwaved for another 4. Really great! - 9/16/08

    Awesome! I also added a handfull of craisins to the "stuffing" which added an extra zip of flavor! My son asked when I was going to make this again! - 10/18/08

    Fabulous we really like this one. I did not use any sweetener, just used very sweet apples. Thanks - 9/21/10

    I added dates and sunflower seeds ( a nut mix I had at the back of the cupboard) and some nutritional yeast (for extra B-vitamins and buttery flavor) and this recipe was awesome. - 11/8/09

    This is terrific! I was in a hurry, so I microwaved the squash for 7 minutes, then baked it in the oven with the apples for 30 minutes. I also added some spice to the apple mixture. If fat and calories weren't an issue I'd double the sugar and butter, but it's really sweet enough as is! - 10/27/09
