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 can easily be enlarged to serve for a family dinner. -Sue Joyce, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

"I was looking online for a squash casserole recipe and stumbled upon this one. Not many ingredients and easy to make...Right up my alley! I only had Panko crumbs and Mexican cheese on hand so I substituted it with those instead.....Delicious! My husband loved it too and wants me to make it again. Definitely saving this one."

"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!"
