    A delicious surprise! I didn’t have balsamic vinegar, used port wine and apple cider vinegar and my squash was old but it didn’t matter.

    i used pecans in the glaze and it worked great. i also added a little bit of fresh ginger, and used quite a few carrots to bulk it up as i didn't have a lot of squash

    I followed the recipe except for an unfortunate dump of oil. Still was good! Would make again.

    excellent recipe! made it only with pears and almonds instead of walnuts

    I made this recipe exactly as listed (which I rarely do). A few thoughts: the salt level was perfect for the pears, as was the reduced balsamic glaze. However for the squash, the salt level was not enough. I also thought the amount of olive oil in the sauce was too much. The pears were outstanding with the glaze, the squash fell short (and I am a big fan of butternut squash).

    Made this with delicata squash (you can eat the peel) and it was delicious. Will make it again and again

    Yummy. Used Fig Balsimic Vinegar. It added to the sweetness of the pears.
