Wow! For such simple ingredients, the flavor is outstanding. I added about a third of a cup of frozen spinach for color and was pleased with the results. I'm thinking about adding this to my Thanksgiving table. Thanks, Mary, for a recipe that even my squash disliking DH gobbled up!

Made this as a side dish to turduckin and it was well received. Used three different kinds of winter squash (butter nut, acorn and ambercup)that I roasted in the oven, then followed the rest of the recipe exactly, adding a little more cheese to the top. The result was a nice savory side dish that went will with the rest of the dinner. Delicious!

This came together in a matter of 20 minutes and really disguised the fact that this was vegetables. I will say that I had to drain and drain and drain the boiled, mashed veggies or else I would have had a watery mess on my hands. Other than that, it will make another appearance at my table for sure!
