Here is a yummy squash and herb pasta salad that is a staple from our crew member Jessica's kitchen.
This casserole recipe has been passed down through our family and is always the first empty bowl on the table at all family gatherings!
Mix up the following ingredients and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Cover with foil if it starts to get too brown:
2.5 cups broccoli chopped, steamed, and drained (we sometimes put more in!)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese grated
1 cup mayonnaise
2 eggs well beaten
salt and pepper
top with buttered crumbs or croutons
Even if you think you hate beets, we wager you'll love this.
This has become a favorite of ours, shared by our dear friend Barbie! :)
Boil the beets until soft. Let cool and peel off the skin. Chop up into small chunks.
Mix the beets in a bowl with some apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar, and a little olive oil.
Add some jam to sweeten - raspberry or apricot recommended.
Add some granny smith apples chopped up small like the beets. (the sour of the granny smith is key to the recipe).
Add some currants and nuts (pecans or walnuts) if you're so inclined. Mix it all up. you can even out the sweet-salty balance to your taste using maple syrup or soy sauce.
Enjoy as a lovely side dish!
This is a simple way to enjoy bok choy! Just wash it, chop it up raw, and make a little salad! We like it with garbanzo beans & balsamic vinaigrette! The crunchy leaves with a little kick make it a unique alternative to lettuce-based salads!

Quarter the spaghetti squash and remove seeds. Boil or bake it until it flakes off like spaghetti and is tender when you put a fork in it. Scoop out the squash from the shell and put in a sauce pan. Add water to barely cover the squash and add brown sugar to taste (anywhere from 1/4 cup +? depending on your sweet tooth and the size of the squash. Let it cook in the sugar water until the water turns a little bit more syrupy and the squash seems to have absorbed the flavor.
Serve warm and enjoy!
