I've used it in pancakes, and in muffins. you can replace pumpkin puree in almost any recipe...

I add it in my mac and cheese - improved flavor!

Agree with the above.

It's also excellent in savory stews.

in pumpkin bread, pumpkin pies.
also, it makes awesome bean burgers. leftover rice, beans, spices, and squash make awesome burgers!
throw some in any soup, or casserole.
fine purree is a great substitute for egg or fat in baking.
i also add it to pasta sauce for some extra color, flavor, and vitamins

Squash Soup

1¾ cups squash puree
1 cup apple juice or cider
½ cup milk
½ cup plain yoghurt or sour cream
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp curry powder
¼ tsp salt
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp butter

Heat butter in medium saucepan over medium heat, then sautee onion approximately 2-3 minutes until tender. Add ginger, curry and salt. Stir in pumpkin and apple juice. Reduce heat slightly and stir in yoghurt/sour cream and milk. Serve hot with bread and cheese.

Also, there's pumpkin pie (pumpkin and squash are the same). I can post my recipe if you want.

Add to cheese and cook in quesadilas. Add to chicken soup. Pick up Deceptively Delicious and you'll have a thousand uses. I made a banana- marshmallow dip that was equal parts banana, butternut squash and marshmallows.
