    Love it! It was so easy! I, too, omitted the tofu, and I substituted seasoned croutons (crushed) for bread crumbs. Turned out great!! - 4/16/08

    Squash is taking longer than planned - up to almost an hour already (I would microwave it next time to get a head start) but the mixture looks delicious! Getting impatient, so I scooped it out and put the mixture into ramekins - baking now. Hope its worth the wait??!! - 4/2/12
