Parmesan Butternut Squash Gratin Recipe

From Betty Crocker's 2007 Thanksgiving publication.

Recipe can be made 24 hours ahead of time - stopping after step 4. I made this for Thanksgiving dinner this year and it got rave reviews - even from my carnivorous husband. My squash was big so I made extra topping and used a couple extra Tablespoons butter for drizzling.
