Our 1-year-old son can be a fussy eater, and my husband is mostly a "meat and taters" man. But both my guys love this cheesy squash bake! Often, I make a double batch of it and take one to the 4-H nutrition class I teach. It's a "hit" there, too. If you're a pressed-for-time cook like I am, this squash casserole will streamline your menu planning.

"My family loves this. Have used combinations of squash. Also, substituted asparagus for the squash and we like that, too."

"I followed the directions to the tee. My squash and onion were not cooked and soft. I was very disappointed."
