Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°; add water to a pan fitted with a steamer rack over medium heat; place squashes on rack and steam over gently boiling water for 10 minutes (I use my Black & Decker vegetable steamer and it works very well).
  2. Transfer squash to a food processor; with pulses, coarsely chop squash.
  3. Add in egg, cheese, onions, dill, salt, and pepper; mix briefly.
  4. Turn into a 9-inch pie pan or gratin dish that has been lightly coated with cooking spray.
  5. In a small skillet over medium heat, melt the butter; add in bread crumbs and nuts; stir about 3 minutes or until toasted.
  6. Sprinkle on top of squash mixture.
  7. Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until puffed up and set.
