Here is another Hungry Girl recipe. "This stuff is the ultimate guilt-free side dish. It tastes like cheesy, fluffy, mashed sweet potatoes, only better!" PER SERVING (1/4th of casserole): 101 calories, 1g fat, 457mg sodium, 20g carbs, 3g fiber, 5g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups butternut squash, cubed
  • 2 (3/4 ounce) wedges Laughing Cow light swiss cheese, room temperature (2 of the wedges)
  • 34 cup onion, diced
  • 14 cup fat free egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon chili powder
  • 18 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place squash in large microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup of water. Cover and microwave for 6 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, uncover and drain water. Set aside.
  3. Place onions in a small microwave-safe dish with 2 tablespoons water. Cover and microwave for 3 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, uncover and drain any excess water. Set aside.
  4. Place squash and all other ingredients except for the onions in a blender. (Make sure squash cubes are not still piping hot.) Pulse until thoroughly mixed (but not liquefied). Remove blender from the base, and then stir in the onions.
  5. Transfer squash mixture to a small casserole dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Place in the oven, and bake for 35 - 40 minutes (until edges begin to brown). Then serve with a spoon as you would mashed potatoes! Enjoy!

I've made a bunch of Hungry Girl recipes lately, and they are all wonderful -- this recipe included. I really liked the chili powder in this dish -- it gives the squash a nice little kick. I used a bit more of the chili powder sprinkled on top for color. Thanks!

Very tasty. After serving it up I added a dab of I can't believe it's not butter light, a shake of garlic salt and about a tsp of parmesan cheese. That made the dish for me even though it changed the points a little. Hubby really enjoyed it and said it would be a good side for Thanksgiving.

Very tasty. If I had not known this was butternut squash I would have thought it was a potato dish with lots of different cheeses. I will definitely make this again. So much taste with very few calories. A sure winner with me. Enjoy !! Beckaroni
