Good and very different. I enjoyed this recipe. I left out the sugar as I didn't want it to be too sweet and I sprayed the top with cooking oil instead of drizzling with butter. It had a lovely flavour and I enjoyed the crispy topping.

I followed this recipe exactly as posted. (Nowhere does it say to mash the squash. Keep it in chunks!) Got lots of rave reviews at Thanksgiving and I had to give the recipe to several.
