Wow this is great. I have made it twice, the first time as directed. The second time I made these changes I did not add the milk to the Parsnip and potato, but add 1 beaten egg. I roasted the Squash as I found it to be a little water the first time. and I only used 1/2 cup bread crumbs in the Spinach. I layered in starting with the parsnip mixture then the squash and then last the Spinach and then baked. I made it the day before and when it was cold cut it into square and re heated on a cookie sheet. It was great and I'll be making it for 40 people for the Christmas Buffet. Thanks
