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 :)

Very good recipe. We only used 2 pounds of the squash because I was cooking for 2 people. It was simple to make and very delicious!

Can I give this 10 stars? This is absolutely delicious. Loved all the contrast of flavors and textures both. The squash soft and sweet and so yummy against the contrasting sharpness of the parmesan and nuts. Made using sourdough bread crumbs and walnuts which makes the yummiest of toppings. This has got to be the absolute best butternut squash recipe I have ever made. Thanks so much for the post.

I loved this! I didn't add breadcrumbs or nuts b/c I didn't have them and it was still delicious!

I really like squash, but my husband doesn't, so I am always searching for recipes that will convince him that squash is a great vegetable. He even liked this recipe - I liked it because it added a little variety with the cheese and nuts.

French Tart... you are REALLY good. This dish is amazing! I had a butternut squash and an acorn squash on hand so I combined the two and served it as a side with Hashweh ("rice Stuffing") Middle East, Palestine. I now have a reason to add squash to my monthly shopping list. Wow!

I made for the holidays to have with our turkey for something different to do with butternut squash. The family loved it and it will be a part of my holiday dinner menu for years to come!

I just made this for a second time, this time with a Delicata squash. I love that I can always turn to it when I have a squash on hand, because the other ingredients are in my pantry. It's nice and light, and very savory.
