Looking for a little something pumpkin and savoury to make for dinner over the weekend? How about this cozy and satisfying casserole. Mmmm, cheesy fall flavours, chicken, and tomato sauce mingle together deliciously in this thoughtful one-dish meal shared with us by the lovely Emily Mardell of GetJoyfull blog.
If you happened to get busy after our last post on how to make your own Perfect Pumpkin Puree, and now have a stash of fresh pumpkin (or squash) puree in your refrigerator– this is the perfect use for it.
Remember >> Many winter squash varieties can be used interchangeably with pumpkin in recipes, and this dish is certainly one of them. (See post for more info.)
Emily, who is a sports & family dietitian, busy mama of three, and proud Alberta foodie, shares:
“I like to think a great casserole has three key elements. A yummy whole grain, a satisfying protein, and a seasonal vegetable. This recipe checks all these boxes and then some. You’ll have to hold yourself back from eating this dish straight from the serving spoon. It’s that creamy good!”
I couldn’t agree more– just looking at the pictures had me cozied up and ready for a plate full.
Thank you for sharing this recipe with us Emily. (Check out her blog for more nourishing, family gathering recipes.) Have a happy fall everyone!
