    French Tart's Note:

    A delicious gratin dish that can be eaten as a main course for vegetarians or works very well as a tasty vegetable accompaniment. This simple gratin can be prepared beforehand and kept covered in the fridge - just remember to take it out for 30 minutes before baking it. The crumbly cheese topping contains pecans, however walnuts can be substituted if pecans aren't available.

      First let me say the end product was delicious, but it did take me quite a bit longer (~25 min) of baking to get the squash soft. The topping was brown and the end of the first 30 minutes, so I had to turn down the heat and cover the dish with foil for the 2nd 30 min. Ended up having this for dinner ther following day, and it reheated in the oven nicely. People may want to start this dish early if making with other items for a meal, to make sure it is done when you want it to be! Flavors were great, nice to have a butternut squash dish that wasn't overly sweet! A keeper for me.

      Very good with a sweet taste. I did have to bake it almost 30 more minutes....I guess my squash was harder than it should have been! A nice autumn dish. Thnx for posting, FT. Made for KcK's Forum.

      This is amazing! I love the fact that the squash stays in chunks, rather than being pureed. I used pecans, and we really enjoyed the depth of flavour we got from the combo of nuts and chunky squash. We loved this, and it will be our go to recipe for squash from here on in. I think I'll be serving squash more often now....yummo! Made for Aussie Swap :)
