Delicious! Steamed the squash instead of boiling to save nutrients.

I haven't tried yet but I plan to. I am confused though - says 0g sugar in the nutrition but the recipe clearly has 1tsp sugar in it?

Good! I used another reviewers recommendation and used cinnamon instead of salt! (although my DH did think they were sweet potatoes and said hmmm...these don't taste like what you made a few weeks ago! I had to let him know it was squash not potatoes LOL).
