Ingredients

1
butternut squash
1 lb
ground turkey, or leftover turkey
1
onion, chopped
1 c
corn
2 c
croutons, or leftover dressing
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pepper
1 tsp
poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp
oregano, dried
1/2 tsp
celery seed
1 pkg
cream cheese
1 c
vegetable or chicken broth
1/2 c
shredded cheese
2 c
cooked pasta (egg noodles work great, but can use just about any large paste)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut squash in half; discard seeds. Place cut side down in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; add 1/2 in. of hot water. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45 minutes.
2
Drain water from pan; turn squash cut side up. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until tender. Scoop out pulp; mash and set aside.
3
While cooking the squash 10-15 minutes, cook the onions and any other veggie you added until tender. Do not include the corn. Add all the seasonings.
4
Add the Turkey to this and cook the turkey until done. If the turkey is cooked already, leave to the side until squash is done.
5
Add the croutons or dressing and cook a few minutes more.
6
Once squash is done, add the squash, turkey (if have not already), cream cheese, noodles (if adding) and broth. Mix until all the cheese is melted and thoroughly mixed.
7
Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until edges are bubbly and cheese is melted.
