John LOVES veggies. He would take a side of broccoli or asparagus over bread or pasta, or even fruit, ANY day. I, on the other hand, like my fruits and carbs much more. He has definitely been a good influence on me though, and I have found myself cooking, roasting, baking, and broiling vegetables much more lately. I have found one specific way that makes me like them even better. Just add cheese.
I found this Cheesy Squash Casserole on the Food Network website, and when I read that it was Paula Deen's recipe, all I could think was: "It probably is just butter with a little squash mixed in." But I tried it anyway, and I substituted a few things here and there...and it was so GOOD! (P.S. It only calls for ONE tbsp of butter!!)
It's definitely a staple in our house now, and I'll for sure be making it into the fall and winter.
