I don't know if my squash was not big enough or what, but the spices were extremely overwhelming and it was all you could taste! I had to throw it away. Maybe with less of each of the spices it would be better. I was very disappointed.


Sheesh, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg for one squash is enough to choke a horse! I cut this down to a half teaspoon of cinnamon and just a pinch of the other spices and that was MORE than enough seasoning. Even after adjusting seasoning it was just okay.


This really is not very good even altering the amounts of seasonings. I LOVE squash with these spices and I love pineapple so why not. I really will not make this again. It just didn't work together.
