The restaurant recipe had prawns and mushrooms, but not olives; maybe next time I will add prawns, too. The dish was colorful. I loved it, but my husband didn't because he doesn't like squash. It is a unique dish that might not be for everyone, and it's a bit time-consuming to make. If you like all the listed ingredients, you'll probably like it. I used Asiago cheese instead of parmessan because that's what was in the restaurant recipe I had."

The two oth..." See moreer reviews seem to reference the "interesting" combination. I think this accounts for why there were some mixed ratings. Leave the olives out, follow the recipe, and it will be delicious! Great with a mesclun green salad or a side of vegetables."
