    This sounded so good but after making it, no one in my family would eat it. Baking time should have probably been much longer as the squash was still very hard. The "glaze" was a pool of warm liquid settled in the hollow. Very disappointed.

    Loved it! I also thought the parmesan would not go well with this, but it was very good! We will be having this again soon!

    I tossed some raisins in with the other ingredients and my husband and I loved this. Definitely a repeater.
