Creamy Butternut Squash and Spinach Gratin
80 mins (prep 30, cooking 50)
15 ingredients
8-10 servings
I just got back from a quick trip to Miami, Fla. and had something very similar to this at a restaurant called Captain's Tavern. It was so good, I had to try to find the recipe. Here's one gleaned from Gourmet magazine, Nov. 2006 via Epicurious. Enjoy! This is one big casserole, but at the restaurant it was in individual dishes. You may add the cheese between each layer or just use it to top, or leave it out if you prefer! On the website, this has 92 wonderful reviews! this is even better the next day. You can half this recipe and cook in a 9x9" pan. This is so good, serve to company and for the holidays. This recipe calls for slicing raw squash but to make it easier to cut, microwave for 3-5 minutes, or lightly steam or bake and then cut in pieces. The recipe says it will serve 8-10 people but some said it served 12!
