Squash casse­role frees up the cook

Make it a day ahead and re­heat for ease

The Daily Press (Timmins) - - LIFE - Ju­lian Arm­strong

a sus­tain­ing, re­laxed meal is pop­u­lar with the hur­ried fam­ily cook, par­tic­u­larly if a recipe can be made in ad­vance and re­heated.

squash is in sea­son, and a new col­lec­tion of 103 casseroles of­fers this easy recipe that can be read­ied in ad­vance of bak­ing and goes well with cold meats and a green salad.

Fam­ily Fa­vorite Casse­role Recipes by ad­die Gundry (st. Martin’s Grif­fin) is down-home cui­sine from an illi­nois-based, chef-trained recipe de­vel­oper.

you’ll find the old casse­role ba­sics — canned tuna and mush­room soup, bot­tled mari­nara sauce, and even marsh­mal­lows on a sweet potato casse­role.

but a load of fresh food com­bines with these fa­mil­iar sta­ples in tempt­ing dishes. and the recipes are so sim­ple, you could teach chil­dren to cook from this book. it’s com­fort food, 2017 style.

to make it easy to peel the squash, the au­thor sug­gests mi­crowav­ing the whole veg­etable for three min­utes to soften the skin. ju­lia­n­arm­strong1@gmail.com
