Layered Vegetable Casserole

I got this recipe from Canadian Living magazine a few years ago. It is a delicious layered casserole combination of creamy mashed potatoes, spinach and squash, that's a great comfort food laced with zingy fresh ginger. I often receive potluck invitatiions with the requests to bring "That layered thing."

    I made this recipe years ago, loved it and looked for a clear tall sided glass ovenproof dish to serve it in. I finally found the dish but by then had lost the recipe! Thanks for being here when I Google searched for it. The vegie layers can be leftovers like kale or chard--the squash can be from scratch. But in a pinch, you can turn out an impressive side dish that combines a starch with 2 vegetables.
