    This aromatic casserole is guaranteed to make your taste buds work. It is sweet, tart with a hot kick but no flavour overpowers the other. It is just perfect. The vegetables are sweet ones like sweet potato and butternut squash although swede is quite peppery sometimes. I created this dish as I went through my herb & spice pantry which my awesome wife sorted for me lately. It seems that whenever I go to find something there I never do so she made sure that everything is sorted and easy to find. Oh, I'm so messy!! Anyway, give this casserole a go as something new and different from the norm. You can replace butternut squash with pumpkin as well. You will need...
