Add my husband to the bunch who hate squash but liked this. I guess the appeal for them must be that the squash is kind of "diluted" or tamed by the other vegetables. Whatever the reason, we both enjoyed this a lot. No changes other than to add a little minced garlic to the sauteed vegetables, and it was fine as is. Sometimes simple flavors are nice in their own right without a lot of additional herbs and spices.

Oh my, oh WOW, and HOLY COW! Made this last night, and my BF ate an ENTIRE SQUASH!!! He loved it so much he didn't hardly touch the main dish, which was one of his faves. Omitted the butter, started with 4 slices thichk cut bacon (cut into pieces) and sauteed veggies in the grease, used a little less onion and a little more mushrooms, and added a bit more salt. As another reviewer noted, had MORE than enough filling, but I just heaped 'er in!!:) This was a fantastic recipe!!!

Delicious. Go heavy on the celery and mushrooms so that you get some in every bite. **update- I made this again with sauteed apples and onions as a filling (with the cheese) instead of celery and mushrooms... so good, and actually pretty filling!
