I made this but added a few things to kick it up.
First, I added a large potato to make it hardier, but honestly the Kobacha squash was probably enough, I would probably add more next time. I like spicy, so I added some siriachi, and also added 1/4 teaspoon of cumin, cinnamon, graham marsala and oregano, salt and pepper. Also added the juice from 1 lime. Came out awesome. The squash was really good.

I'm sure the original recipe is quite good, I was afraid it was going to be a bit too mild for my taste .
