Reviews for Makeover Summer Squash Casserole
"Definitely not a healthy recipe, delish!"
"sorry forgot to rate it!! It was delicious!!"
"it was delicious!!"
"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!"
