      Love butter cup squash, this is very tasty, the filling was great, tasty and crunchy too. I had no pecans so I used walnuts, very nice!! I will be making this again, thanks for posting.

      I had never had Buttercup Squash - in fact I thought at first it was a typo and was supposed to be Butternut :) My produce guy helped me sort it all out. They only had large ones, so I got 1 and followed the rest of the recipe exactly as written, did not use the optional pecans, but next time I will. This was a very good side dish! Easy to prepare and put in the oven for the twice baked part while baking some pork chops. I'm thinking about it for Thanksgiving, it would be perfect. I'm thinking you could bake a day ahead and twice bake the day of. Thanks RiffRaff!!!
