Not only is this the easiest and quickest squash casserole, but it’s healthy and scrumptious. The tender, delicate squash is baked with onions, tomatoes and jalapeno in a cheesy sauce flavoured with Mexican spices. I highly recommend making this warming dish, packed with loads of A, B6 & C vitamins. Serve with a light salad or with a main
