10+ stars!! I used a butternut squash & it was sooo easy & soooo delicious!! If you eat the crispy bits, they're kind of hot, but combined with creamy yumminess of the squash it's sheer heaven. I quartered 1 squash but should have made at least 2 because everybody wanted more! Made for NA*ME Tag. Thanks, Linds!
