We used this in place of my mother's classic squash casserole for Christmas dinner and it was excellent! Tasted very similar to her much higher-fat recipe and even she had to admit that it was very good. Will definitely make this again.

I made this with a turkey breast and it was excellent. My husband could not stop raving about it. Can't wait to reheat it with tonights dinner. I followed the directions and they were perfect.

This is the freshest tasting squash casserole we've ever tried - and we've tried many in our quest to find an alternative to the southern tradition of butter crackers and massive amounts of cheese. This is my husband's favorite childhood dish but squash is that one food our kids just don't like however it is disguised. This recipe won praise and requests from all to add it to the standard menu rotation. We've served it with both turkey and chicken, on veggie night and taken it to potlucks and it worked well each time.

I would make this again and again. I served it with a pork loin roast. I followed the directions to a T and wouldn't change a thing. My picky grandchildren loved it!!!

A delicious and different vegetable side dish. I left out the cheese, as we are trying to cut calories. Also left off the topping. It was still very good and would definitely make again.

Excellent side dish! I would definitely make this again. It's a little tedious with all the different pans, but worth it in the end.

I boosted the flavor a bit: first, I slowly cooked the onions to begin to caramelize them before adding the squash and a bit of chicken stock to steam the veggies. I also added bay leaves to the warm milk as I made the sauce, then removed them before finishing the dish. Two low fat Laughing Cow wedges added to the low fat cheddar made the sauce creamier. I grated nutmeg over the crumbs. The results tasted rich and satisfying.

Fantastic low-calorie recipe, easy to prepare and very yet filling. I turn this into a vegetarian entree by adding left-over brown rice into the mix prior to baking. It helps soak up some of the excess water from the squash.
