I first cooked this about 5 years ago, and keep coming back to it for dinner parties and guests because it's always gone down so well. It's a great option for vegetarians to cook for meat eaters.

Very tasty and looked lovely. I don't think my boyfriend even noticed that there wasn't any meat in it! I used 3 cloves of garlic and it was perfect. I am looking forward to cooking this again when I receive another squash in my veg box.

Really tasty mid-week dinner, and healthy too! Would recommend adding extra garlic as well... My boyfriend doesn't like goat's cheese, so he had it with feta instead, and still seemed to really enjoy it.

I have made this recipe a couple of times. I used the last of the Christmas stilton instead of goats cheese and threw in some mushrooms to roast towards the end of the squash cooking time, it was delicious.

Did a variarion, leaving out spinach and goat cheese, but adding roasted bacon and sage leaves. As well, replaced butternut with hokaido.. Really delicious! As a tip, if your gnocchi become dry, use a few spoons of vegetable stock!
