Butternut squash adds a little sweetness to this comforting casserole. You can use leftover turkey and even replace the croutons with leftover stuffing, if you wish. It's sure to satisfy your family. —Mary Ann Dell, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

More like a side dish than a main dish, but tasty nevertheless. We ate it from a bowl and it was a warming and cozy dish.
