This was really good, I really enjoyed it. I was looking for a recipe that I could make to use up a butternut squash that I had lying around. The only adjustments I made were that I discovered I didn't have as many pearl onions as I thought so cut up one regular onion and when I prepared the water for the couscous I added half a vegetable boullion cube for extra flavor. I found that I had to cook the veggies a little longer than stated. I used lemon thyme from my garden and that flavor I felt went great with the dish. Well, the final product was met with praise at our house. Thanks for a butternut squash recipe that's not too sweet and thank you for posting. I will make this one again.
