5 stars all day. Wow, was this good. The apples were very soft and flavorful, the meat was delicious and the squash was the star of the dish. It was soft, tender, sweet and very tasty. The gravy was the perfect topping, the cinnamon and apples gave it a subtle, savory apple pie taste. We enjoyed this dish very much. Thank you for sharing. Made for Autumn Fever 2019.

I HATE to see people join the site, have no published recipes, but rag on another cook in a review on a recipe they haven't even tried or didn't follow. Oh, and I hate cilantro, too. :)
