From super food ideas - looks like a tasty vegetarian side. I would use sugar free maple syrup for diabetic reasons.

We loved this Pat, sweet and savoury and YUMMY!
I followed as written but was out of sour cream, but will be trying it again with the cream.
I love the fact you can leave the skin on......I hate removing the skin on pumkins!
DS usually won't eat the pumpkin, but he did this one.....not too mention is a nut freak, so it did not take much persuading him to try it! He loved it also.
Thanks Pat, enjoyed by all here!

I used a small delicata squash and that truned out delicious. It's both sweet and savory with the pecans being a perfect addition. Good enough for holidays and easy enough for everyday. :D
