This was pretty good! I made completely by the recipe this time, but I think if I make again I would increase the seasoning slightly (definitely more pepper, maybe a little more salt and pumpkin pie spice) and would maybe add a clove of minced garlic to the butternut onion topping, since it felt a little on the subtle side with the taste. Maybe I had a weak onion, it didn't seem as oniony as I expected which is why I think it was a little more bland than I was hoping after it smelled so great cooking.
I thought this was a warm tasty meal for a fall evening. The butternut squash topping was delicious! I did add some pomegranate seeds I had on hand as I thought it would add to the fall flavor and it was a nice crunch to the tender squash and onion mixture. Although the seasonings were nice, I might try it next time with Penzy's Saigon seasoning. Served it over couscous with mint.
Absolutely delicious! The squash is a bit of a hassle but very very good. Next time I will buy pre-peeled, cubed butternut squash.
