    Butternut squash bake
    serves 4, pro points per recipe 14
    per serving 3

    low fat cooking spray
    1 carrot, peeled and diced
    1 celery stick, chopped
    2 garlic gloves, chopped
    1 teaspoon mixed dried herbs
    350g bag frozen quorn mince
    400g can of chopped tomatoes
    1 vegetable cube, dissolved in 50ml of hot water
    800g of butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and sliced thinly along its length
    200g tomatoes, sliced
    30g fresh breadcrumbs
    30g half fat cheddar cheese, finely grated

    you will need a 2 litre flameproof and ovenproof dish

    1)Spray a large, lidded non stick pan with cooking spray and heat until hot. Add the carrot, celery and onion and cook, stirring for 3 minutes. Stir in the herbs, mince, tomatoes and stock. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

    2)Spoon a third of the mince mixture into the ovenproof dish. Top with slices of squash and repeat the layers ending with the squash. Scatter over the sliced tomatoes, the breadcrumbs and the cheese. Bake for 30-40 mins until the squash is tender and the top is golden.


    I found that it took ages for the squash to be tender so part cooked it in the microwave first

    Jem - just to say that it's really worth trying quorn mince as I wouldn't know the difference between that and beef mince in a bolognese and yet it is so low in points.
