This just might be my favorite new way to make a side dish casserole to feed a crowd. It just bursts with all of the great flavors of fall and fresh herbs. I used fresh rosemary, sage and thyme. They smelled so good when I chopped them up.

Butternut squash is one of my favorite squash’s. I love roasting it with just a little butter and brown sugar, steaming it and mashing it or making ravioli’s with a brown butter and sage sauce. Stay tuned because I’ll be posting that recipe shortly.

I was able to cut the onions and potatoes on a mandolin but the squash proved difficult so I sliced it into thin slices with a chef’s knife. I baked this in a 8 inch spring-form pan. You could also bake it in an 8 x 8 casserole dish.

    yummmm! this looks so comforting! I’m a HUGE fan of butternut squash any which way I can get it. I need to pick up another one. I wonder if the food processor would slice it nicely? I think I’ll try it. Thanks!

      If you try it let me know. Mine I think would of done the slices too thick. I have never invested in a good mandolin but unless I want to do squash what I have works just fine.

      It kind of is. I was thinking the same thing but I have to have mashed for that wonderful turkey gravy! It is a great fall side dish….
