Butternut Squash & Ham Casserole

I’ve been eating so much chicken and kale lately, that I needed to change things up. I switched to spinach, zucchini and decided to order a pack of sliced butternut squash from my deli.

The problem with packages like these, is they don’t last long. So, I looked through my fridge to see what I could come up with. And here’s tonight’s recipe for you.


  • 1 package of sliced or diced butternut squash (3 cups)
  • 2 cups of cooked ham – diced
  • 2 cups of grape tomatoes – halved
  • 1 cup of green or white onions
  • 2 cups of zucchini – diced
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Spices: salt, pepper, basil, garlic plus
  • Optional: 1 cup of tomato paste


  • Heat up a skillet on high heat
  • Add in 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • Add in the onions
  • Heat for a couple of minutes
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients
  • Add in spices and mix well
  • Cover with a lid and cook on medium-high for about 10 minutes or until squash is soft.

Add in a cup of tomato paste to add extra flavour. I’m doing this with my leftovers. Serves about 2 people – or 1 person with left overs for the next day.

    Yum. My store doesn’t have that. But I’m trying different recipes. I have more squash – so who knows what I’ll do with it this week. It’s so tasty.
