Nutrition recommendations for all adults include eating more vegetables, preferably 5 a day.  Sometimes it’s difficult to eat that many vegetables but this recipe has 5 vegetables in one casserole – squash, celery, carrots, onions and bell pepper.  What a delicious way to meet your requirements for vegetables!
