Squash Casserole Recipe?

Does anyone have a recipe for a casserole using butternut or acorn squash? I'd like one that is savory, not sweet and that will feed 8 people generously. Having a party tomorrow night and think this will go well with the rest of the meal.

Thanks

Lyndalou

Thank you both. Kim, I have a few questions about your recipe.

How is the squash cooked? Is it mashed afterwards? I assume the bacon and onion are fried; is the bacon cooked until crisp? Love the ingredients, but not sure how to cook them
Thanks

June, I found that recipe in a Taste of Home magazine some years ago and it is so easy to make. I sometimes leave out the sugar or add more crushed saltines and Parmesan. You can make it up to baking the night before. It is good leftover also. Goes great with any type of meat, fish or poultry.

I'm late with this, but for your next 'squash' dinner party - this is great!!

ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH PENNE AL BURRO
Serving Size : 6

AL BURRO SAUCE:
6 fluid ounces unsalted butter
1/3 cup heavy cream
3 ounces freshly grated Parmesan
BUTTERNUT SQUASH:
1 pound Butternut squash, peeled, cut in ~1/2" chunks
1 T. Olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 1/2 T. fresh mincced sage leaves
salt & pepper
------
1 pound Penne
-------
the following are optional garnishes for the dish -
24 -36 fresh sage leaves
1" depth of veggie oil in a small fry pan
Optional adds: toasted pine nuts,

al Burro sauce:
With a mixer, beat the butter till light & fluffy; add the heavy cream gradually, beating constantly till all cream is added.
Add the Parmesan, mix just till blended; cover and reserve.

Butternut Squash:
Put the 1/2" cubes on a baking sheet and toss together with the 1 T. olive oil, minced sage, garlic, and salt & pepper.
Roast in a 400° oven for 15 - 20 min. till tender, turning the pieces once during roasting. Remove from oven and set aside.

Sage Leaves garnish:
Heat the fry pan with ~1" veggie oil till a couple of drops of water sizzle.
Drop in individual leaves top side down - after 30-45 seconds, turn over and let just brown; remove quickly w/a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
Set aside.
Cook Penne according to pkg. directions, drain.

Finish dish:
Add the penne to the al burro sauce mix together well, then add the roasted butternut squash, toss gently to completely mix - add salt to taste and lots of freshly grated pepper.

Top each plate with addtl. grated parmesan and a few fried sage leaves and/or pine nuts. And, a little more freshly ground pepper, if desired.

Serving Ideas : -----
When you feel flush, try a bottle of E. Guigal Condrieu (a White Rhône wine) with this dish - delicious!!

Jean, I would LOVE to make this dish (and even more to EAT it!) but the last time I tried to peel a Butternut Squash I ended up with pretty bad cuts on my hands. What do you use to peel those suckers? and/or what method???
