Loved it! Used russets instead of Yukon, baby portabellos (crimini) instead of shiitake, and delicata instead of acorn, just based on what I had. Delicata is nice because you don't have to peel it, makes easier prep. At first I was going to use some sweet potato, but then decided against it since the squash already has sweetness to it, but I did add carrots to use them up, add color and crunch. I used thyme instead of sage just to match the rest of the meal better. The key to a recipe like this is the size of the dice, you want everything to cook through at the same time but nothing get mushy. I started the potatoes a bit first, and I like kale a bit more done in things like this so I added it earlier than the recipe says. I wish I would have kept the red pepper dice larger. People that say it's bland probably did not add enough salt and pepper, although that is probably the fault of the recipe because it does say "pinch" which in my opinion is not enough. Maybe I should take a star away for that, but salt and pepper should always be to taste. I almost always ignore S&P measurements in a recipe. Regardless, this combination of veggies is outstanding and I'm keeping this one for sure!
