This is like the traditional sweet potato dish with marshmallows. I can only find frozen "winter squash" in my area and it works great.

Fantastic! Great blend of spices and a great way to use up my huge stock of butternut squash. Made for 123 tag.

I've been "eying" this recipe for awhile! I baked a butternut squash and used 1 1/4 of a large one (about 3-4 cups of squash). I pureed the mixture in the food proc. I used 1/4 of dark brown sugar (since it is stronger flav.). I really liked that it didn't call for a lot of butter (unlike most!). This was delicious and my husband (doesn't like squash or s. potatoes) had TWO helpings and said he liked it a lot! Thanks Flower, for another great recipe. Roxygirl

OUTSTANDING recipe! Made this to serve to my vegetarian son & his wife & they were very pleased with it, as was I! The topping OVER the marshmallows made it special, I thought, & I did add some chopped walnuts to that topping! Thanks for posting this recipe!
