“Here is another Hungry Girl recipe. "This stuff is the ultimate guilt-free side dish. It tastes like cheesy, fluffy, mashed sweet potatoes, only better!" PER SERVING (1/4th of casserole): 101 calories, 1g fat, 457mg sodium, 20g carbs, 3g fiber, 5g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 2*”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups butternut squash, cubed
  • 2 (3/4 ounce) wedges Laughing Cow light swiss cheese, room temperature (2 of the wedges)
  • 34 cup onion, diced
  • 14 cup fat free egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon chili powder
  • 18 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place squash in large microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup of water. Cover and microwave for 6 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, uncover and drain water. Set aside.
  3. Place onions in a small microwave-safe dish with 2 tablespoons water. Cover and microwave for 3 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, uncover and drain any excess water. Set aside.
  4. Place squash and all other ingredients except for the onions in a blender. (Make sure squash cubes are not still piping hot.) Pulse until thoroughly mixed (but not liquefied). Remove blender from the base, and then stir in the onions.
  5. Transfer squash mixture to a small casserole dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Place in the oven, and bake for 35 - 40 minutes (until edges begin to brown). Then serve with a spoon as you would mashed potatoes! Enjoy!
