A warm and hearty Italian meal of yellow squash with beans in a rosemary, tomato sauce with olives, paired with a side of potato parsnip mash.
1. Peel and dice potatoes and parsnip. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and mash with a potato masher along with 2 tbsp olive oil (see notes). Season with salt and pepper.

2. Heat frypan over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp oil. Peel and slice onion. Chop garlic and rosemary leaves. Add to pan as you go. Cook for 5 minutes until softened.

3. Quarter mushrooms and squash. Add to pan along with drained beans and olives. Stir in 1 tsp paprika, 1 tbsp tomato paste and crumble in stock cube.

4. Stir in 1/4 cup olive oil, crushed tomatoes and 1/2 tin of water. Simmer for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

5. Divide mash and cacciatore among plates. Season with extra pepper if desired.
