I made this side dish and as long as no one knows, I wanted to eat the entire casserole.  I didn’t.  But I really wanted to.  You all know, I love to cook, but the less time spent in the kitchen means more time spent with friends and family.

I used butternut squash that was already peeled, seeded and cubed just to save time in the prep.
