      This dish was a treat! Instead of butternut squash I used pumpkin, and I am so glad I did! The pumpkin really stole the show :) The combination of veggies provided just enough flavor to be able to pair it with plain couscous - which is a feat in itself. Wonderful recipe!

      MMMMMM...with my new found love for couscous this was wonderful. The family was not real thrilled with it but I will make it in smaller portions for me and my mom. Made for zwt 07 for zingo

      Reviewed for ZWT3(Zingo) ... This was gorgeous! When we first started eating it, I thought it was a four-star recipe ... the flavors weren't as rich and as spicy as I'd expected. But by the end, both my husband and I were pretty thrilled with it. Sweet without being too sweet, subtle rather than uninteresting. Much easier to make than I'd expected. I'll definitely make it again!
