Butternut Squash and Spinach Casserole

Today is a blustery day so I decided to make this warm creamy casserole. I love using butternut squash for savory dishes as its typically only used in sweet dessert type of meals. I made an individual serving so keep that in mind when looking at the recipe.

1/2 cup pureed butternut squash
1/2 cup frozen spinach
1/4 cup ground turkey
2 tablespoons cottage cheese
2 tablespoons egg whites
2 dashes of ground sage
1 dash of thyme

Preheat oven to 425. Take frozen spinach and defrost in microwave and drain the water. Place turkey in pan and cook. Break turkey into small pieces. Mix turkey, spinach, squash, cottage cheese, egg and herbs together in a ramekin and make for about 40 minutes at 425.
