    Still have half of a butternut from my recipe the other night to try this… AND, I’m thinking it would be a great way to use some leftover turkey after Thanksgiving!

    Looks delicious!

    I made this last night with just a drizzle of maple syrup and a dash of thyme and loved it but my son thought it was too sweet so I will make it without any maple syrup next time – such s great, simple fall recipe – Yum – can’t wait for the leftovers for lunch!

  5. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I debated only putting 1 tbsp of maple syrup, surely you could do that. Isn’t great that we find the food alone to be sweet enough! Love it! :)

    Made this for dinner tonight and my husband loved it (I did too)! I was short on the butternut squash so I filled in with sweet potato. So simple to make and most of the clean up was done while it was baking so a short clean up after dinner.

    I am glad you enjoyed it Pat. :)

    I am making this the day after Thanksgiving. Just replace your chicken with turkey and you will have a great leftovers casserole!

  10. Julie Skinner says:

    This is actually what we had for our Thanksgiving dinner, since it was just the two of us this year. Astonishingly good!
