Any time even my 4 yr old and 6 yr old will eat dinner without complaints dinner is a huge victory! Personally, I'm not a huge fan of pork in general, but this had so much flavor. My 6 yr old said the squash tasted like dessert! I cheated and bought the pre-chopped squash (totally worth it IMO) and the dish pulled together so easily! Served with mashed cauliflower and everybody cleaned their plates! Keeper!

I felt that this recipe had a lot of potential but was not as flavorful as I was initally hoping. The pork took longer to cook (I was trying the HIGH for 2 hours route) and the French Onion Soup got lost and made the squash quite watery so I wondered if as much would be necessary should someone make it again.
