I really enjoyed this recipe. I had a certain dessert quality to it, that was interesting. I put a little more pinapple in that the recipe called for and next time I may try a little less. Also, I cut way back on the spices. I just sprinkled a little in with the pinapple and kept adding to taste. Overall this is a good recipe!

I don't know if my squash was not big enough or what, but the spices were extremely overwhelming and it was all you could taste! I had to throw it away. Maybe with less of each of the spices it would be better. I was very disappointed.

Sheesh, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg for one squash is enough to choke a horse! I cut this down to a half teaspoon of cinnamon and just a pinch of the other spices and that was MORE than enough seasoning. Even after adjusting seasoning it was just okay.

This really is not very good even altering the amounts of seasonings. I LOVE squash with these spices and I love pineapple so why not. I really will not make this again. It just didn't work together.

Way to much spice! We could barely finish our portions. More pineapple and butter would help. Also, cooking squash in microwave, then in oven after adding spices saves time.

fabulous! But I had to add a touch of sweetner...not much though

This recipe is exceptionally good. I do had more spices as I like them, but other than that, made no changes, it was great!
