"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."

"WOW! So much more than I expected. We WILL make it again. . .and again. . It is a well rounded veggie recipe. I'll cut back on the onions next time but that's all."

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