I followed this recipe except I only used 1 squash and didn't have any mint leaves. Even though I cut the recipe in half, I think it still could have used less oil and the oregano was a tad bit overpowering. I'm glad to have another recipe for butternut squash to use. Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game 2010.
