Even though my family doesn't really like ssquash, they LOVE this casserole and often request it instead of potatoes! It's secret ingredient, nutmeg, adds a really different flavor combination that is a real people pleaser! It freezes well, so I always keep one on hand for potluck suppers or picnics. The original recipe, which I have modified to be lower-fat, came from "Entertaining at the College of Charleston", by Zoe D. Sanders
