Squash Casserole

When I lived in Colorado, I would eat at the Black-Eyed Peas Restaurant. My Dad came to visit me once and I tried to get him to eat there. After the third time, he reluctantly went with me. He really liked it there. One of the dishes we would order was their squash casserole. I just loved it. I wanted to try to make a copy cat recipe of their squash casserole. Since it has been many (many) years, I could not tell you if this recipe taste like their recipe. This casserole is very good. It is savory dish. My husband told me he will try it but hasn't yet. We will see. I will someday get him to eat more vegetables even if it isn't today.
