My husband first tried this comforting casserole more than 10 years ago when he was still my fiance. Having enjoyed it so much, he said I needed to offer it at every Thanksgiving dinner. I was happy to oblige!—Maura Calusdian, Londonderry, New Hampshire

"We didn't know we were going to LOVE this custard! Yummy, just the right amount of spice, not overwhelming. Delightful. Even the non-squash loving teenager in our house devoured it. I used a hand held blender to cream/mash the mixture to remove squash lumps. Since I was uncertain of it's 'doneness' baked a little over 65 minutes. Perfect!"
