  • I microwaved squash and finished this in the oven. Nice to see no added sweeteners and it did not need it. - 2/22/12

  • Great dish with nice presentation. We ate it for dessert and loved it-will make again and again. - 10/31/11

  • I liked it, but would reduce the spices a little -- we could taste the spice, but not the pineapple. - 4/23/11

  • I took the advice of other members, and cut all the spices in 1/2. It was Delicious! My Hubbie said it would be a good pie filling! :P - 10/11/10

  • I have yet to try this, but I love a veggie recipe that can be passed off as a "dessert"

  • I found the spices to be overwhelming. My husband thought it was fine. I guess it's all about personal tastes. - 3/5/08

  • It is a little sweeter than I enjoy, but ended up serving it under a cajun sword steak with raspberry spicy salsa and that worked. - 11/3/07

  • I was a little disappointed in that you couldn't taste the pineapple at all. Next time, I think I might add more than a cup of pineapple and add some splenda brown sugar. - 10/22/07

  • I made this last night with a bit of modification and it was really good. I added 3 T. of brown sugar for a bit of sweetness and put it in a 9" square pan rather than back in the shells just to make it easier to divide out 6 portions. This tasted more like a dessert than a veggie. - 4/3/07
