I made this for a dinner party last night. It is a lot of work....of course just cutting up a butternut squash takes some time. After reading other reviews, I didn't add quite as much of the herbs as it called for, so they weren't overwhelming. I could have added more. It does make a lot of topping, so next time I am going to try mixing 1/2 of the cheeese herb mixture w/o the breadcrumbs into the squash portion, then add the rest of the cheese mixture w/ the breadcrumbs (used panko!)to the top. I had to make the squash portion ahead of time, so I did it on the stove as the directions stated, then turned it down and put the cover on it. I stirred it occasionally so it wouldn't burn, then left it with the cover on while I went to a football game. When I had to prepare it, I put it in the casserole dish, and brought it to the party. I heated it up in the oven then added the topping. After the cheese melted, I put it under the broiler. It was very good, and got rave reviews. For those that complained about the expense....well butternut squash is very inexpensive, I grow my own herbs, so its really just the cheese. This makes a lot, so it goes a long way and its cheaper than eating out.
