I used 6 different squash varieties I found at my Farmers Market. Otherwise I followed the recipe without much alteration and crumbled the bacon and used it as a garnish. My husband and I thought it was delicious and a good way to try new squash varieties. It's a keeper.

I had to use dried herbs because I forgot to pick up fresh, and it was still very delicious.  Definitely a keeper!
