      Excellent recipe! I couldn't find any muenster cheese so I used aged gouda and it was very tasty.

      I've made this twice in the past 3 days! After reading the other reviews, I considered changing it up before giving it a try... (I agree, basil and soy sauce and brown sugar sounded like an odd combination to me too) But I am sooo glad I didn't! This combination is perfect in my opinion!! I'm really astonished at how good it tastes! I only had swiss so that's what I used... still good. The second time I made it, I didn't have anymore mushrooms so I subbed some shredded zucchini, and had run out of walnuts as well. It was just as good though! I recommend mixing the shredded cheese in a little not just topping it, only thing I do differently!

      I thought this was great, but made a few minor changes. I used olive oil instead of butter (healthier) and sharp cheddar instead of muenster cheese. Next time I make it (there will be a next time!) I would scoop out some of the softened squash and mix it with the filling prior to topping with cheese. It was a nice mix of flavors, and the splash of soy sauce gave it more of a depth of flavor.
