So little water was required that I didn't drain it after cooking and it turns out I should have. Used Panko for the bread crumbs and think an improved texture would be ideal. Decent little casserole but not my favorite way to eat yellow summer squash.

I made this for dinner and when I let the kids taste it, they ate the whole thing! Good thing I have lots of summer squash.

Pretty dang good. My personal taste wants something crunchy (corn flakes, maybe?). Would make again.

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!

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!
