Oh MAN this was good. I used 2 sweet potatoes instead of squash because that's what I had around. I was afraid they'd take too long to cook so I peeled and cut them in half and roasted them under the broiler while I was chopping up the other ingredients. I later made the recipe again with butternut squash and it was good too, the sweet potatoes gave it a slightly different flavor and texture. I followed MarieAlice's suggestion and put grated cheddar on top which complemented the flavors nicely. I got a bunch of requests for the recipe when I brought it to a potluck. Thanks so much, it's definitely a make again!
