"I have made this recipe for several summers. It is delicious! I think I started just using green onions rather than both, though. But it's delicious whichever way!"

"Very good. I left out the water chestnuts because I don't like them, but otherwise followed the recipe. Will definitely make this again."

"This is a delicious casserole. I used Stove Top Stuffing instead of the crackers and mozzarella cheese instead of the cheddar. I usually try to cut calories when possible, so I used a light mayonnaise. Next time, I'll reduce the butter too. My husband loved it."

"This is a great recipe for those who have kids that don't like squash. The water chestnuts give it an extra crunchy texture."

"This one beats out the traditional Squash Casserole, although very tasty, "by a mile".
