Here's what you'll need for the topping:
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 and coat a square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

2. In large bowl, beat sugar and margarine until creamy. Beat in 1 cup of the milk, sour cream, egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix until completely combined.

3. Pour half of the batter into the pan. Spread squash puree over the batter and sprinkle with marshmallows. stir the remaining 1/4 cup milk into the rest of the batter and spread evenly over the squash filling.
