Reviews for Crumb-Topped Summer Squash Casserole
"I thought that I didn't really like squash until I tried this!! The only thing I changed was: I only used 1 tablespoon of sugar and I used Italian Bread Crumbs because that's all I had. It was delicious!!"
"My family doesn't care for sweet summer squash, so I substituted 2 T Parmesan cheese for the 2 T sugar. Also, I halved the recipe. Good!"
