    Ingredients

    Nonstick cooking spray
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 1/2 medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    1 medium onion, diced
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme (about 1 teaspoon ground)
    1/2 teaspoon fresh sage (1/4 teaspoon ground)
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves (1/2 teaspoon ground)
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    3/4 cup raisins
    4 cups cooked diced turkey breast
    3 cups cooked wild rice
    1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
    2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add squash, onion and black pepper. Sauté for 2 minutes or until onions appear clear. Cover and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Do not overcook. Squash should still have a slight firmness to it.) Stir in the thyme, sage, rosemary, nutmeg, raisins, turkey, rice and 1/4 cup cheese.
    3. Pour into prepared dish. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top. Bake for 5 more minutes.
    4. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm.
