Butternut squash is a great source of vitamins A, C, and E, hence, the title. This is a simple and healthy dish that looks as good as it tastes. One good sized squash is perfect for this recipe. It's easy enough for a weeknight side dish and colorful enough for a holiday dinner. Thank you to the two butternut squash vines that volunteered their way into my garden this year!

We were given a nice butternut squash from someone's garden, and this recipe gave us something tasty to do with it. We took it to a church potluck, where it was enjoyed by many. The squash cooked to creamy perfection and the peppers added a nice medley of flavors. There was more liquid in the casserole than we would have preferred, and wondered if it should be cooked uncovered for part of the time; but in general we were delighted. Made for PAC.
