I've made this squash casserole for years. The only difference in the recipe I use is the addition of a can of drained, sliced water chestnuts. It's not as crazy as it sounds...just adds a little surprise crunch. A delicious recipe that's sure to become a family favorite.

Excellent, this is the best tasting squash casserole. I like it because you can actually taste the squash and the other ingredients don't overpower it.

Mmmm, this was the squash casserole I've been looking for for years! I think the thorough draining of the squash is the key, it doesn't have that thin consistency that some squash casseroles have and it's full of flavor. Very very good--this will be my only squash casserole recipe from now on!
