  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, eggs, ranch dressing, and pepper together in a bowl. Gently stir into squash mixture and spread into the prepared baking dish.

  • Combine stuffing mix and 1/2 cup melted butter in a separate bowl. Sprinkle over squash mixture, pressing down slightly.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set and lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley.
