Super tasty! I hate eating my vegetables, but this was so good. We doubled the cinnamon and nutmeg, and added more apple and cranberries. To speed up the cooking time, we microwaved the squash alone then put everything into the oven, and it was all ready in 20 minutes.

Not bad. Very quick and easy to make if you buy the squash already cut up. It was good, the only complaint, and this is among teenagers, too, is it was too sweet. So I will cut back next time.

Early fall puts us in the mood for winter squash and this recipe is very tasty! I found cubed butternut squash for an unbeatable price and needed a way to use it. I followed the recipe closely and it was excellent! I pureed the leftovers, added grilled chicken chunks, brown rice, and chicken stock and had a wonderful seasonal soup! I’ll keep this as a go to recipe for winter squash.

Made this tonight to experiment before the Holidays. Will definitely make this for Thanksgiving! Using precubed squash made this a quick and super easy recipe!! YUM!!!! I agree with the other reviews, will add more cinnamon and nutmeg next time. I too used real butter as we don't use margarine.

My family does not like squash very much, so through the years I've tried different recipes here or there to try to get them to eat it. I was able to get 3 out of the 4 of them to eat this! I used dried cherries instead of cranberries, and regular butter. The only suggestion from my family was to add more apples! This recipe is a keeper!

Just had this tonight. I truly wanted to eat the whole thing! This will definitely be a favorite. Next time, I may add some nuts, YUM!!

This was a great addition to a turkey dinner. Definitely buy your squash pre-cut and bagged - I didn't...what a pita that was!

This was a huge hit this Thanksgiving. Even my picky toddler and pickier husband enjoyed it. I doubled the spices and must admit I used butter instead of margarine, as I didn't have margarine on hand.
