Notes

The recipe is very lenient with the amount of squash used. I have used up to 10 cups before without changing the rest of the ingredients and the casserole was perfectly fine. I did cook it a bit longer. It just depends on how much you have on hand. You can also make this casserole with half squash and half zucchini or substitute almost any squash you like such as acorn or spagetti squash.
