      This is a very special recipe! We loved it. It is amazing how 2 tsp of Soy sauce and 2 tbsp of Maple Syrup can transform the flavor of the squash & beans into something so good. This will be a regular veggie dish for me. I steamed the beans in the AM, pared and cut up the squash, kept them in the fridge and 15 minutes before serving dinner did the final steps. I used an orange skinned squah (not sure of the name) and it was wonderful Thanks Derf this is, as I said, a special recipe

      I struggled with how to rate this. When I made it exactly as called for, I found the veggies too crisp for my liking. Once I put it in a casserole and baked it for about 30 minutes, I really liked it! But I am sure just as many folks would dislike the veggies being cooked softer. Nonetheless, I thought this was a great option for greenbeans with a special, festive touch, but not heavy wtih lots of cream, butter or crumbs.
