      I prepared this using butternut squash. I did the browned butter, honey and sage variation with great results. It was so good with our dinner. This will be enjoyed by us many times. Thanks!

      WOW! I have been looking for a great recipe for acorn squash but had not previously found one that was as delicious as recipes for other types of squash. This one, however, knocked our socks off! I used the browned honey butter and sage option and everyone was amazed at how savory and delicious this was. It really brought out the flavors of the squash. Our family knows all about Zaar now from the great recipes I find here and they all said unanimously to "Give it 5 stars!" :) Thanks for the great recipes!

      My five-and-three-quarters year old said she "likes it better than chocolate!" Enough said. (Thank you.)
