      The best flavors of fall combine together in this wonderful tart. Actually I only made the filling and served it as a casserole, which turned out perfectly. I baked the casserole covered for the last 30 minutes, just as instructed, and the squash was tender and succulent. I will make this healthy dish many times this winter, Evelyn. You are the best.

      Evelyn, you've done it again!! I must say that I have only ASSEMBLED this, and then froze it. But I can attest to its beauty and the incredible flavor of the onion layer. I used half and half instead of heavy cream (I'm getting fat!!) and used evelyn's own patee brisee recipe. I will update this review when I finally actually bake the tart and sample the finished product.
