I did make a few changes to the recipe but decided to give it stars anyways since no one else has reviewed this. I always steam my broccoli (in the microwave) but not squash because that just sounds tasteless... so I sauteed the squash. I only used one squash since it seemed larger than the ones called for. I reduced the oil/butter/lemon to one Tbs each and was happy with that. Also the thought of just tossing in raw garlic was unappealing so I sauteed the garlic for a little while with the other seasonings in the pan with the squash.
