  1. Hi there. The servings are different. The initial serving size is 4. However, on the bottom of the page , you state it’s for 6 servings. How many servings in this recipe?

  4. “Print friendly” is printing only the color picture– not the recipe. :-(

  5. This recipe sounds so good, but because I count ALL my carbs, the small butternut squash is too vague. Could you please give me a better amount…say in grams?
    Thank you.
