      This was such a delicious supper! I made exactly as directed, except I used original sausage -- wish I would have done the maple like suggested, that would have been a great flavor addition to this. I was just cooking for myself, so I halved the recipe to make 1 squash (2 halves). I ate the one half and then scrapped the other one into a bowl to eat for lunch tomorrow. Can't wait! Thanks for posting such a yummy recipe!

      This was my first time cooking butternut squash and this was a great recipe to start with! I used spicy Italian sausage with was a nice match with the sweet flavours of the apples and sugar. I think this could be a great make ahead recipe for my next dinner party. Thank you for posting! :)

      meh, not bad, but not overwhelmingly great - i'm sure that user error proved to be some of my downfall, though! one thing i did notice is that the amount of cooking time for the squash is far greater than the recipe indicates. i actually ended up sticking the halves into the microwave after the 40 min time came and went. i'd suggest either increasing the amount of time or turning the oven up!
