Made this casserole today with pumpkin squash. Followed the directions exactly. Results were good tasting , but had a consistency of baby food! Any suggestions? Have made wonderful butternut souffles, but those recipes included flour and eggs. What is supposed to hold this together??

The best butternut squash recipe I have found. My kids even love it.

This recipe sounded so much better than it tasted for me. I normally am a big fan of butternut squash, so expected to love this, but it just didn't quite hit the mark for me. Maybe with some tweaking I think this could be an awesome recipe. Maybe some salt, or nutmeg?
