This recipe comes from Hungry-Girl.com, and I just tried it today. I can vouch for its deliciousness. It's very lowfat, but it tastes nearly as good as the high-fat counterparts that are traditionally served on and around Thanksgiving. If you're looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional recipe (8 oz. of which often contains over 400 calories and 20 grams of fat), try this.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 2Peel squash and cut into large chunks (removing seeds).
- 3Fill a large, microwave-safe dish with a half an inch of water.
- 4Place squash into dish and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for approximately 8 minutes (and drain).
- 5Squash should be tender enough to mash, but not fully cooked.
- 6With a potato masher, food processor or fork, mash squash.
- 7Measure out 2 generous cups, lightly packed, and place in an oven-safe baking dish.
- 8Add all ingredients except for marshmallows. Mix ingredients thoroughly, but do not over-stir; squash should still be pulpy.
- 9Allow to cook for 45 – 50 minutes.
- 10Remove from oven, and disperse marshmallows over top of pie.
- 11Return to oven for 5 minutes, until marshmallows begin to brown.
