    chefRD's Note:

    This dish has been a staple on Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. I don't remember my mom making squash any other way. I just know that when I tried it as a child for the first time I remember how delicious it was. A Thanksgiving without it is not a real Thanksgiving at my house. Other's have tried to duplicate it and failed. There is only one way to make it and this is it. Don't substitute or change anything, follow the directions to a "T". Enjoy!

      This was good but missing something. I would make it again with garlic and I think adding crisp bacon to it would be yummy. Of course, everything is better with bacon! The squash was declicious. With a few spices, it would be WOW! Thanks for sharing a good recipe.

      EXCELLENT vegetable dish! This is one of my favorite ways to prepare squash and I am sure we will have it again and again. The herbed stuffing make the flavors of this dish. Even leftovers are delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe! Prepared as a participant in the Spring 2008 PAC Event.
