Reviewed Butternut Squash with Pecans and Blue Cheese

Nov 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

AMAZING! But REALLY, peel the squash first! The skin is not good! Also, I toasted the chopped pecans in a pan for a few minutes to flavor them. Let the squash cool a little before tossing it with the blue cheese/pecans, or else the blue cheese will become all gooey and hard to serve. This is very rich and very delicious! ""

I don't think the extra butter is necessary, the rendered bacon fat is enough to flavor the dish. I subbed 1/2 and 1/2 for coconut milk. Also, remove the bacon after cooking (I left in whole slices, then chopped after it cooked), then toss back in before serving to make sure it stays crispy. ""

Loved this dish, but will make some adjustments next time. The zucchini doesn't need to cook for a full 20 minutes on the stovetop, it was overcooked by the time it came out of the oven. A good 5-10 minutes is enough. I will add a little cayenne next time for some bite!"

Don't be afraid of the amount of cocoa in these, they come out SO rich and yummy! I reduced the sugar amount also.

I used some advice from the reviews and used chicken broth and a touch of coconut milk instead of water. It came out beautifully! Alternatively, I'd like to try it sometime sans potatoes and on top of rice. I'm not quite sure how well the potatoes belonged in the dish.

I added lime zest for extra flavor. The quality of tequila you use really makes a difference, these are great bars!!

This made a TON of soup. I would cut the recipe in half.

I love this! I make it in a casserole dish instead and used half the amount of pasta (ends up nice and saucy). Sometimes I use ground turkey, which works just as well as turkey sausage.

I couldn't find Sazon seasoning and used taco seasoning instead. It worked out nicely. I added lots of jalepenos for a little kick. This dish took a while to make, but you can make it ahead of time and pop into the oven when needed.

I agree, the dressing was very thick. It would almost work better as a dip.
