HG Butternut Squash Bake

Submitted by: RACHEL12311


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 cups cubed butternut squash (or two frozen packages)
    2 wedges The Laughing Cow cheese, Light Original Swiss, room temperature
    3/4 cup diced onions
    1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. chili powder
    1/8 tsp. pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

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. (If using frozen, just defrost)

Place onions in a small microwave-safe dish with 2 tbsp. water. Cover and microwave for 3 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, uncover and drain any excess water. Set aside.

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.

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!

  • This was SO good! It tastes much like the summer squash casserole I grew up eating...only WAY lower in calories! I ended up mashing the squash with a fork instead of using the blender, and it turned out great. - 2/28/09
