    I like all of the ingredients in this recipe, so I tried it. I was very disappointed. The flavors were very unusual, and neither my husband nor I liked it at all.

    Besides peeling the squash, I loved every piece of this recipe. Healthy, flavorful, different... This is going on our favorites list!

    Love this dish. I add grated lemon and lemon juice from one lemon near the end. It just adds another level of flavor.
