Looking for a good comfort food recipe for these cold winter days? Here’s my mom’s yummy recipe for Baked Bruschetta Squash which is not only delish, but really easy to make! It’s one of our family faves she makes, and one she recently taught Abby, so I documented the steps to share with y’all.
Here’s all you need:
2 lb bag of frozen yellow squash
1/2 cup chicken broth (or water)
1 1/2 cups bruschetta sauce
1 to 2 cups shredded mozzarella
Start by cooking the squash in the chicken broth (or water) until the squash is tender and starts to cook down.
Next, drain the liquid and return the squash to the pot. Using a potato masher or an immersion blender (here’s my favorite one for a great deal via this affiliate link), blend the squash until it’s smooth, but with some soft chunks.
Spray a medium baking dish with cooking spray, then pour the squash into the dish.
Next, layer on the bruschetta sauce and then the cheese.
Bake at 350º for around 15 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with a salad for a warm winter meal, or make it as a side for your favorite meat! Either way, I think you’ll agree it’s a hit. Enjoy,friends!
