  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking dish.

  • Two cups of butternut squash is about half of an average-sized butternut squash. The amount is approximate. You can add a little more squash if desired.

This was yummy. I added some fresh spinach... just because. I added some red pepper flakes to the leftovers and though that was an improvement.. will add those next time I made this as well

I thought this was quite good. I used Saltines instead of Ritz because that's what I had, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. I was a bit worried that the squash wouldn't be soft enough, but it was fine. It's pretty salty with the crackers, so I don't think you need to add the extra salt.

My husband is so picky so i wouldnt tell him what i was making, as i was sure he would think it sounded gross. I had the ingredients on hand and wanted to use up some squash and ground turkey. It was faaaabulous! Even my 2year old was eating it..and she is just as picky as her dad!

Could not imagine what these flavors would be like combined. Turned out to be a lovely sweet/savory combination. And easy preparation! Bought the precut squash from Trader Joes and cut them into smaller cubes. Whole family liked it!

I completely deviated from the original recipe. I sauteed the onion with the ground turkey, then added the butternut squash and a can of stewed tomatoes. I also added garlic and onion powder to the egg mixture, and covered the casserole with 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese and breadcrumbs since I didn't have the crackers. (Next time I would use crackers.)I had 2 servings.
