I made up that name. Pretty good, eh? I made up the casserole, too, although there’s nothing original about it. Leftover, basically, but Three Sisters Casserole sounds like I knew what I was doing. We had it for supper last night, along with green beans cooked with potatoes and sliced tomatoes (all from the garden, which is almost over, boo-hoo for me).


  • “Italian” flavor bread crumbs
  • yellow squash, raw, thinly sliced
  • Swiss cheese
  • succotash (corn and lima beans), already cooked
  • butter

Heavily butter a casserole dish. Sprinkle a thin layer of bread crumbs. Lay down a single layer of squash slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bread crumbs. Cover with a layer of Swiss cheese. Put down a layer of corn and lima beans, salt & pepper, bread crumbs, cheese. Repeat layers until dish is full or you run out of ingredients. Cover and bake at 350F for about 20 minutes. Uncover and broil until top layer of cheese is as brown & bubbly as you like it.


MAN, this was a good casserole! Made me sorry it was made out of the tag ends of things, because we only had enough for one meal. I’m definitely going to make that again.
