    Made it per recipe & loved it. Then I made my own changes, as I am won't to do. I dropped the garlic, switched onion to shallots and used herbs de province rather than plain S&P. Worked well, but will use original more often.

    This is really simple and the flavors come together nicely. I'd cut the salt and pepper in half, though, and go from there. I guess it depends on the size of the squash you're using but ours was a bit salty.
