I don't know why I said chopped squash... I meant cooked. Anyhow, you can use 3 cups of squash if desired. I found it does help to use a little more than 2 cups. Also, yes, you can sustitute butter and margarine out, AND cut back slightly if you choose. I add more cheese than the recipe calls for as well. The only other thing I wanted to say.... someone said they cut out the sugar. It's only a SMALL amount, and the sugar helps the flavor come out in the dish. Anytime you add sugar to a salty dish, it helps accentuate the flavor of your meal. I learned this from my grandmother as well. :) I hope I helped fix my recipe... there's no edit button. haha. Thank you for the wonderful reviews! Alyssa



We have taken this recipe for our squash casserole and have thrown out the one we had. It is really delicious. I usually don't make changes but due to the time I had and the ingredients on hand I altered it a bit. I used 3 cups squash and some carrots (steamed all veggies)just because we like lots of veggies. I also used one box of cornbread stuffing mix (house brand ok) with the seasonings already in it then omitted the sage and salt and pepper. I cut the margarine to 1/4 cup because we didn't need the extra fat. I followed everything else and it was fantastic. This is a real keeper.



Very good, quick and easy...
