I wasn't a squash fan until after I married and tried my mom-in-law's squash casserole. I've refined it a bit where now my husband and whole family loves it. Not recommended for very often as it's quite rich. But it's excellent at Thanksgiving!

Squash dishes are so frequent at my table, that my husband has been known to occasionally protest. But not so with this delicious new find! He - like the Crew - LOVED this recipe. Perfectly tender and cheesy, even hubby could be found going back for seconds.... Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
