With a buttery cracker topping and lots of cheese, this lightened up classic casserole from Lisa Eldridge of Topeka, Kansas makes a guilt-free side dish at any meal. "I got the original recipe from a friend," Lisa notes. "And it is excellent."

I am in the process of making this. Sounds very good. I was wondering if I could freeze this after assembling and bake it later.

This is a great recipe to use up the abundance of summer squash in a garden. Like another lady, I used part cottage cheese and part cheddar cheese. My family also likes to add cooked sausage (sometimes bulk and sometimes sliced smoked sausage) to this recipe for an all in one dish. Thanks!
