Love squash, and love barley so recipe was terrific as written. Also liked it with a little curry powder too.
Butternut & Barley Pilaf
From EatingWell: December 2005/January 2006
Winter squash contributes a rich, full flavor to a simple barley pilaf. Gremolata, an Italian mixture of parsley, lemon zest and garlic, gives the dish a lively finish. The pilaf is an excellent accompaniment to chicken and pork, but would stand on its own with the addition of Parmesan.

Not bad, followed recipe as written, used vegetable bouillon, a little bland, could use a twist, maybe Indian spices?
I couldn't find any butternut, so I used zucchini. Wow! My husband, who doesn't like any kind of squash, loved it and wants more. A very versatile recipe. Oh, I also skipped the lemon zest.
Excellent dish. I love the brightness the lemon and parsley add. I took the suggestion to add beans so I threw in some canellinis to make it a meal. I also added an additional two cups of butternut squash and a full cup of parsley.
