Reviews for Calico Squash Casserole
"Great summer recipe. I will make this again. Even the meat lovers loved it."
"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."
"I took this to a potluck and it was gone quickly. Very good."
