I must admit I didn't have the squash but I'm glad because we liked it just fine with out it. I added one chopped jalapeno (seeds and all) and two cloves of smashed garlic to the onion. This turned out to be just the taste I was looking for. Different and delicious. This is now added to my Jerk Chicken dinner menu. Thanks!
