Made this for a foreign food potluck, and it was very well received. It was a new experience for me to have others ask for my recipe at these monthly functions because everything I make for them is a first-time experience, and few turn out too spectacularly. Serving leftovers at later meals, it didn't seem quite as tasty as on its first appearance. Only thing I did differently from the printed recipes was I didn't peel the yellow summer squash. Also, I didn't serve it over brown rice, just served it "as is".
