This casserole of potatoes mashed with mozzarella, prosciutto, and salami and baked until the cheese melts and the top is crusty and brown is great as a side with chicken or a roast or on its own with a green salad.
This classic holiday side gets an update with the simple addition of slivered fennel. The mild hint of licorice in the fennel adds wonderful flavor and texture to the creamy potatoes, and breathes new life into an otherwise plain side dish.
Everything about this dish says fall -- the sweet earthy flavor, the rich fragrance and the bright orange hue. It's a quick dish to throw together and is even faster when you buy a package of squash that's already cleaned, peeled and cubed.
