Cucuzza Cream Pie

I've been searching for recipes to use up my abundance of cucuzza squash from my garden. There aren't many recipes out there using this unique squash. A cucuzza is a long green Italian squash with a bit of a nutty flavor. I adapted this recipe from a recipe in a Taste of Home Magazine called "Butternut Cream Pie". I changed it up a bit and I think it tastes similar to a pumpkin cream pie.
