6 Variations on Squash Casserole

  1. Squash, Pepper and Polenta Casserole
  2. This firm-textured casserole, full of garden-fresh vegetables, can be sliced like a pie and served at room temperature.

  3. Cheesy Zucchini Casserole
  4. August in the midwest brings a profusion of fresh-zucchini dishes; zucchini casseroles (not to mention zucchini bread and muffins) are ubiquitous at both picnics and potlucks.

  5. Summer Squash and Tomato Tart
  6. Use crispy puff pastry to create one large tart, then top it simply with soft, pesto-spiked goat cheese, sautéed vegetables and slices of fresh tomato, all sprinkled with chopped green olives.

  7. Braised Summer Squash
  8. Zucchini are delicious here, but Sicilians use the pale green summer squash called cucuzze, which have a texture somewhere between cucumbers’ and zucchini’s.

  9. Butternut Squash-Polenta Gratin
  10. Zucchini and Summer Squash with Oregano
