Squash is gruesome in my books. Right up there with brussel sprouts and turnip for gag factor.
As I grew up I realized adding brown sugar or bacon made almost anything edible, and if that fails why even try.
This has always been a Christmas time hit with the yellow, green and red making an attractive dish. This one is dedicated to my friend Eugenie

2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup coarly chopped pecans
