    Disappointing. It sounded great but the combination tasted weird. My only changes were to omit the garlic and use a different shape of pasta.

    I would definitely make this whole meal again. I only sauteed the butternut squash in cooking spray, but thought it needed to cook a little longer than the directions. I also used Turkey Bacon and then crumbled that in. I thought it was super good, but I thought it needed a bit more salt. The spinach and apple salad was amazing with it.

    YUM! Great, easy recipe. My kids ate it, so it passed the test. I omitted the green onion because I forgot to get them at the grocery store. Otherwise, I made it exactly as printed.

    This was excellent! I improvised a lot using a pound of bacon (maybe not so light!) , a lot more garlic, and romano cheese instead of what the recipe called for. It was great! Will make it again.

    My husband and I loved it, and our two year old even ate it. I made one change - rather than using the pasta cooking water, I used 99% fat free chicken broth. I served with roasted asparagus.

    This is very good and if you buy pre-cut squash, very simple. I could not make myself add that butter, though! My husband drizzled a little olive oil over his at the table, but I was fine without. Save 60 calories per serving by eliminating if you need to. I also used a whole wheat blend pasta, reduced-fat blue cheese crumbles, and white wine instead of cooking water. Very filling with a salad on the side and a slice of baquette. Please use humanely raised pork.
