Butternut Squash Kugel

This butternut squash kugel is so easy to make, you’ll never make it any other way!  It is the perfect dish to bring to a pot-luck Shabbos meal and it tastes great with almost any entree.

Most kugel recipes I come across are so unhealthy that they should be served as dessert.  This recipe is different.  It uses natural applesauce- so there’s no margarine or oil in it at all!

With limited cooking time, I love recipes that use frozen veggies.  That means I can stock up on the main ingredients (and take advantage of sale prices!) and then cook when I have more time available.
