Every week for the last month or so I’ve been getting a different type of squash in my CSA farm box.
I’ve cooked butternut squash a couple of times in the past but otherwise have very little squash experience.
Since they were starting to takeover my kitchen counter, I decided it was time to cook something squashy.
I’m a little tired of soups and stews so I decided to make something like this Autumn Squash Pepper Casserole. Of course, I never have all of the ingredients so this recipe was changed like most of the ones that I make. I didn’t have any red peppers but I did have one tiny sad looking green one. So I used the green one, an onion, and frozen peas. I LOVE peas so will happily add them to almost anything I make – seriously. I also used garlic cheddar cheese instead of parmesan and a lot of curry powder. Oh, and since I had so much squash I used three different kinds. I figured why not mix and match. ;-)
My first problem was cutting them!!! I was doing this after exercising and thought that I should have just skipped the workout but because cutting squash was WAY harder physically. I quickly became frustrated, turned to the laptop and googled “how to cut squash”. I then discovered the ultimate answer, which better cooks then me probably already knew – microwave for 3-4 minutes. After I did that I didn’t need to develop my upper body strength to cut up the squash.
All of the ingredients with lots of curry powder.
Shredded Cheese on Top and Ready to Bake.
I mostly liked this. Next time I make it I’m going to stick to one kind of squash as I didn’t really like the mix and match flavors too much. And I will put the cheese throughout the dish rather than just on top. The cheese tasted great with the squash so I added more to the bowl that I ate.
Do you have any awesome squash recipes? Is mix and match squash not a good idea?
