I became a confirmed squash lover when I sampled this dish at a friend's house more than 20 years ago. The blend of creamy squash and crunchy stuffing makes it a favorite.

"I wanted to try this recipe as I had a couple of packages of frozen cooked butternut squash on hand! I also had cream of chicken soup and water chestnuts-also 5.3-oz. cartons of unflavored plain yogurt available. I did purchase the cornbread stuffing mix! I decided not to saut? the onion, but just added it to the squash, which I'd cooked per instructions in my microwave oven, and I added a 5.3-oz. carton of plain unflavored yogurt, 3/4 tsp. salt,1/4 tsp. pepper, the cream of chicken soup, drained and chopped water chestnuts, 1-1/2 cups of the corn bread stuffing. I melted 3 Tbsp. margarine since I had that available and transferred squash mixture to a 12x6-1/2" greased loaf pan (sprayed with PAM cooking spray). I topped squash mixture with remaining stuffing mix and drizzled with the melted margarine. I baked dressing for 35 minutes at 350o F. on a foil-lined 15x10x1" baking pan. I'm looking forward to tasting this dressing! Thank you for sharing with Taste of Home! delowenstein"
