Summer Squash Side Dish Casserole Recipe

My daughter-in-law created this recipe and shared it with me. I was delighted, since my husband and I were cutting down on fried foods and that's the way I had always prepared squash. The recipe is versatile...it can easily be enlarged to serve for a family dinner. -Sue Joyce, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

I was looking for something to do with summer squash other than saute it and this was a great alternative. I'd probably add some more salt, subtract some of the butter, and maybe add some Parmesan cheese next time, but there will definitely be a next time. Yum!

Delicious! I am so glad I doubled this recipe. I think this has already become one of my favorite ways to serve squash. I will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing!

My husband and I really enjoy summer squash prepared this way. It's now become the only recipe I use for summer squash. We add a more cheese than recipe calls for. Definitely comfort food at its best!!!
