Squash Rice Casserole

Every time a mom from our mommy group gives birth, a friend of hers organizes a Meal Train to help her family with their new transition. If you’ve been a long time reader, then you might remember my first Meal Train meal for Erin. Since then, I’ve delivered 10 meals to my mama friends! My most recent Meal Train recipe is this yummy, cheesy, comfort food deliciousness called Squash Rice Casserole.
