  1. Looks fabulous. Better than traditional Shepherd's Pie made with ground lamb.

    Beautiful carnival squash. The east coast gets the best pumpkin-types. Haven't seen any of the great ones we used to get on Cape Cod since leaving there years ago.

  2. I have never seen the Carnival Squash before … hmmm, I'll have to look for it. Do you think instead of potatoes we could use "mashed cauliflower"? This looks delicious. I have a question for you, I have the 2 quart Cosori, how do you know to put the squash on the rice setting and how do you determine the time.

  3. I don't remember ever seeing one of these squashes. It is funny I have always just hated those kinds of frozen vegetables. For me the green beans feel like they are fibrous and the Lima beans never get soft. I would use the stir fried version instead, but that is just me. Also because of my strange diet, I would use like 90% lean ground beef, mix with the vegetables, and that is it. Can't eat the carbs, mash potatoes, though I love them, and of course the cheese is just too many calories, again I love cheese and that will be missed in my recipe. I might try to add some diced tomatoes, because they are healthy and low in calories. Anything else I would think of to add to the filling making it better I can't eat. Hell, if I had it my way I stuff the thing with donuts! πŸ™‚ Ah, maybe a scrambled egg? That might be good and its protein. Life as a diabetic and a obese person is difficult sometimes. And trying to stay within my 600-800 calorie diet is sometimes seems impossible. But I am actually doing pretty well with it. I keep a food diary that looks all my foods up and tells me the calories and nutritional facts. Like today I have eaten 20 grams of carbs; 14 grams of fat; 60 grams of protein. So, I am still low on the protein so I might have half of a protein shake. Thanks for the recipe, I know it was tasty and even though I will modify what you made it gave me some ideas that I would never have thought up on my own. Thanks. I don't know if you have a Google Home or an Amazon Alexa, but I just ask my Google home how many calories are in an Acorn squash and it told me 56 calories per cup. Now that right up my alley.

  4. Wow Kathy this is one beautiful recipe! We have never heard of this before. It's so unique. Looks really yummy!!! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

  5. Awesome meal! It would be great for individual servings at a party! Thanks for this awesome video. Love that pressure cooker!

  6. WOW, Awesome Recipe, Kathy! I never saw a Carnival Squash before. Just asking? I would love to see some recpiies for Spaghitti squash if you have time. Thanks for all the Great Video's and all the Great Work

  7. Hi Kathy. I'm not a huge fan of squash. I love zucchinni, but that's about it. However, having said that, that looks delicious. Could you describe what that squash tastes like? Since it sort of looks like a pumpkin, does it taste like that? If so, I just might have to try this recipe. πŸ˜‰ Thank you.

  8. Kathy, do you think Colcannon potatoes would be good in the squash? Carmelized onions, cooked cabbage (or broccoli) in the mashed potatoes. Maybe for another occasion, but it sounded good.

  9. This looks so darn good and I can't wait to try it… I saw a video that you and Rick did one time with a bunch of different dishes in it and I was glued to your "root veggie and greens" dish… going to try that one too πŸ™‚ TY Kathy for such delishousness!

  10. This was so neat ! It looks beautiful, festive, and tasty πŸ™‚ I have never had this variety of squash. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Kathy to make this a full meal (we love meat) could i add some ground beef or turkey? And what season would you suggest if you were gonna season
