Beef Squash Bake

The other day we got a smallish butternut squash at TJ.  I was thinking what could I make with this. So here is what I came up with....

Beef Squash Bake 
1 butternut squash, peeled, cubed, cooked **
1 lb ground beef
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 T olive oil
1 t sage
salt & pepper
1/4 c heavy cream ***
1/4 c mozzarella, optional

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a baking dish.

Add the cooked squash to the baking dish.
Chop onion into large pieces - 1 inch or so.
Put oil in pan to medium heat. Add onion and sage, cook until clear.
Remove onion from pan and add it to the baking dish.
Put pan back on the heat and brown the hamburger.
When hamburger is cooked add the cream, salt and pepper to taste.
Add to onion and squash mixture.  Stir and add the cheese.
Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.

** I roasted the squash in the oven at 400F for 20 minutes.  Use non-stick foil on your baking sheet!!
You can also steam it for 10 minutes over simmering water in a steambasket.
*** You can substitute nut milk!
