  • Drain any excess liquid from the skillet, and transfer the mixture to a casserole dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Evenly top with gravy, followed by frozen mixed veggies. Set aside.
  • Drain the excess water from the squash and mash well.
  • Add butter and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt and mix thoroughly. Evenly layer the squash mixture over the mixed veggies.
