  • This was very YUMMY! I doubled all the spices b/c I had 2 extra cups of squash and my onions were large. I didn't have fresh sage, so used dried. I can't wait to try it w/ fresh herbs. Also, tried turning a batch into a soup w/ veg stock, 1 shallot, & then puree. It too was good, but thick. - 10/14/16

  • Love butternut squash. Like the seasonings here too. I have done a bit of cinnamon in the past and maybe mint, tarragon or thyme too or a mixture. Like this version a lot. thank you - 8/14/16

  • Love this recipe! I've made it as written above and also have pureed and then thrown in a soup pot with some chicken broth to make a soup. Excellent both ways. - 11/18/10
