substituting cheese in dishes

  • szq 15 years ago
    I learned this trick when I was desperate to feed my picky toddlers. In casseroles or sauces I substitute half of the cheese with pureed squash. For an example, if you have a recipe that calls for 1 cup shredded cheese, subtitute 1/2 cup of that with squash puree. The squash is better for you and yet it gives a creaminess without altering the taste. It is also cheaper than buying all that cheese.

    What kind of squash? We have lots of different kinds where I'm from. I'm guessing just regular yellow summer squash?
