How did this recipe work out?

I did try this recipe and really enjoyed it. I chose not to use the hot sauce. I do think that I should have roasted the squash just a little bit longer to make it just a tad more tender but it was still delicious and I will definitely make it again. It was also ridiculously easy, which makes it extra nice. Oh and as an added bonus, the left over squash was very much enjoyed by my two dogs.
