    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

    Very Good
    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"
