Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I would like to know the nutritional value of recipes that interest me. Where do I find that?

Did not like this at all. Would not make again altho I love all the ingredients they just didn't make it in this recipe.

If you use pumpkin you will get the same results and taste.

oops....I didn't read the posts below before I posted this...sorry as it's been said already.

Do you mean canned pumpkin? If so, how much - one can? That would seem easier to me.

If you can't find frozen squash, could a fresh one be used? If so, how do I prepare it before I use it? Does it have to be cooked, grated or what?

You can almost always find frozen butternut squash at least where I live in jersey. Otherwise you could buy one in the produce section of your grocery peel and cut into chunks and boil until fork tender. Or cut in half scoop out the seeds and roast it until tender.

Can you use fresh out of the oven squash for frozen squash?

You can, but if you use the squash you'll never know the difference. They're very similar. With all the spices it won't have a "squashy" taste, for real.

Could a can of solid pack pumpkin (not pie filling) be substituted for the squash? Don't like squash - DO like pumpkin ...

Butter nut squash tastes like pumpkin.
