    Good but not great. Whole sage leaves were overpowering so recommend leaving out. Will make again though bc so easy. Used pre-cut squash too

    My one attempt did not hold together like the photo. It was delicious, but not beautiful - a lovely "scramble" of quinoa and squash and sage. Anyone overcome this problem?

    With two vegetarians in the family, this recipe is a permanent part of our Thanksgiving feast. It's beautiful (looks like the picture!) and everyone loves it, meat-eaters included.

    Do you think it's okay if I use an other kind of squash ?

    This was delicious! The squash and quinoa were wonderfully creamy, and the cheese/sage balance was perfect. Here's what I suggest doing before roasting the squash: in a small skillet, combine 1 Tbsp. canola oil, 1 Tbsp. maple syrup, 1/2 tsp. cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp. black pepper and a pinch of cayenne. Heat over medium, stirring, for 1 or 2 minutes, then pour it over squash and toss. I also fried the sage leaves, as ehguy11 suggested. Wonderful! I'll be making this again soon.

    This is a fancy-looking dish. It's great to bring to a dinner party. Very healthy too. My only suggestion would be to fry the 12 sage leaves instead of baking them with the sweet potatoes. Just fry them quickly first - using the oil for the onions. Then put them on a paper towel when done, and continue with the recipe. They won't burn and will taste much better. Frying sage leaves is an old Italian trick. Enjoy!
