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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Definitely not a winner. Way way way too much spice. It totally overwhelmed the flavor of the squash. I wish I had read the reviews before I made it. This flop will be removed from my recipe box ASAP. Read More
