Or at least for us it was a new squash casserole. For years I have made a squash lasagna and I will write that one up eventually but last night I was thinking about ways to make a simpler meal. I had asked my daughter to cook supper and she is still in the learning stage…so I wanted to make it easy for her to do.
These are the instructions that I gave her:
Shred the squash in the food processor and put it in the colander to drain…squeeze it out after it sits for a few minutes. Dump it into a bowl and add a couple of eggs, and a enough coconut flour to thicken it just a bit.
While the squash are draining season the tomato sauce to taste Italian. (Basil, oregano, garlic, and fennel-but not too much or daddy will tell us he does not like it.)
Put the squash in a greased baking dish. (350) Put on a layer of cheese and then the tomato sauce. When it is done in about 30 minutes put on another layer of cheese.
Oh yes, do not forget the salt and pepper where it is needed.
It came out delightfully good for a first try. We all thought hamburger or bacon would have been good in it and it would have been included except…search as we might, we could not find any without a trip to town which was not going to happen. But even without the added meat this was a really tasty and fulfilling supper.
