This casserole is tasty comfort food in my family. Don't toss the seeds, they're better than pumpkin for roasting! Try RitaL's Spicy Roasted Butternut Seeds / Pumpkin Seeds Spicy Roasted Squash Seeds

Love this recipe. I will say it's much easier to microwave the squash in a pan with about 1" of water for about 30 minutes. Let it cool, or put it in the fridge to cool. cut it open, scoop out the seeds and spoon out the squash. Size and microwaves vary, so check on the tenderness frequently and add water as necessary. Top with Parmesan cheese.

I halved the recipe with no problems & used a butternut squash. The sour cream provided a contrast to the sweetness of the squash. Thanx Jude!
