    I prepared this dish for the first time and instead of using 3 lbs. of butternut squash, I used a 12-oz. package of cooked frozen butternut squash, cooked in my microwave per microwave instructions. I used 1/4 to 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated), 1/2 large onion, chopped, 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 3/4 cup milk, 2 beaten eggs, 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs, 2 Tbsp. MARGARINE. I cooked the squash, then stirred the other ingredients into the cooked squash except the bread crumbs and the margarine. I used a 1-quart to 1-1/2 qt. casserole dish, greased. I then sprinkled top with bread crumbs and dotted with the margarine and baked 45 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Since I cook for myself now, I use a smaller-sized baking dish! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein

    Bland, would not make this again. Maybe 2 cups of chedder and some spices might make this interesting, but as is, it was dry and bland.
