Butternut Squash Red Pepper Casserole

I can’t say enough about this scrumptious Butternut Squash Red Pepper Casserole. It’s heavenly. Really. The combination of sweet flavors from the Butternut Squash and savory from the Parmesan cheese, garlic, parsley and rosemary is irresistible. On top of that, it’s fairly easy to whip up using only a handful or so of ingredients.

Over a decade ago, I sampled this tasty casserole at a potluck our Sunday school class was having one Saturday. I loved the recipe and immediately asked for the recipe. Then I forgot about it. I happened to be looking through my computer for recipes to make for a dinner in early May and stumbled across this wonderful recipe again. I knew I would have to make it. I loved it the first time and I think I enjoyed it even more the second time around.

I served this lovely Butternut Squash Red Pepper Casserole with Grilled Chicken, Loaded Bacon and Cheese Potatoes and a Magic Raspberry Cobbler. Our friends brought along a salad. It was perfect with these other foods. This is such a terrific side dish that I recommend you consider serving it for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner this year. It’s that good!

Unfortunately, while I was baking this recipe, my camera died on me. Literally. The shutter would no longer work so I could not get very good pictures of this tasty dish hot out of the oven. I had to purchase another camera and these pictures are of the casserole reheated a few days later. While it still tasted fantastic, the pictures were not as great as I would have liked.

Even still, Butternut Squash Red Pepper Casserole is a delightful side dish to make for company or family dinners, holidays or potlucks, or because you have an abundance of butternut squash or red bell peppers growing in your garden that you want to get rid of! The seasoning is just perfect and the taste is so irresistible you’ll find you’ll want seconds. 🙂
