      Evelyn the stuffing is heaven and I can think of a dozen other ways to use it. It is crunchy and the flavor is excellent. I used Sweet & Low Brown sugar substitute - no problem. I too found that it needed 1.5 hours baking but then it all depends on the size of the squash. I cut the recipe back to make 1 squash (2 halves) no problem. You do not say what size of box of Ritz-I did double the crackers to the almonds Thanks Evelyn - loved this recipe

      This was an easy, yet festive dish to serve on Thanksgiving. The flavors were light and sweet. A good way to serve squash for those that don't like it. I had to bake it a about 1.5 hours it was only about halfway cooked at the 1 hour point. Thank you evelyn/athens for the good recipe.
