“This vegetable casserole will pair nicely as a side dish for Shelly’s family. It is flavorful and colorful as it offers a range of vegetables and fresh herbs. This recipe also adds summertime’s favorite squash. Squash offers an array of nutritional benefits including, vitamin C, B6, and fiber.

To compliment this collection of vegetables is the original blend of fuel good cheese. This cheese is infused with ginseng and green tea, which not only adds flavor, but two traditional sources of natural energy. Green tea boasts heart healthy properties and ginseng provides a peaceful balance to this dish.”
