I wasn't thrilled with this recipe, but maybe that's because I halved the olive oil and butter. I think five tablespoons of fat is too much for a recipe that makes only six servings. But considering the other reviews, the butter and oil must be making this dish worthwhile. The only other changes I made were using button mushrooms instead of shitake and chopped swiss chard instead of kale (all what I had on hand). This dish looked really good in the skillet, but was quite bland like other reviewers have mentioned. I just don't see the point of making this again and don't intend to try it with additional seasoning. Life's too short. The butter and oil are clearly the stars of this dish and, if I want to eat tons of fat, I can just make cookies. As for peeling the acorn squash, with a good peeler, it's actually not that bad. I hadn't done it before either, but found a few videos online. Just cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds, cut the halves into wedges, and then peel the wedges. I even left little bits of peel in the hard-to-peel grooves of the squash and didn't notice them at all when eating the dish.
