Yellow Squash Casserole

This casserole is one of my favorites. My family often requests it and it is a great way to use up yellow squash!—Mae Kruis, Gallup, New Mexico

    I made this tonight and it was a hit. My elderly father doesn't like too many different vegetables, so I am always looking for new ways to cook the few that he does eat, such as squash. I used 10 saltines but I may try fewer crackers and/or another type of cracker next time. I didn't really care for the texture of the crackers in the casserole. This is definitely a keeper.

    Sounds good but this recipe needs a picture. I like to know what things are supposed to look like.

    Didn't have green chilis on hand so I chopped some red and yellow peppers I had and sautéed them with the squash, also had bacon flavor Ritz crackers. It was great! Will make again and try the green chilis next time.

    I loved how the chilies kicked up the flavor. Since I was short on time, I sauteed the onions and squash until tender, then stirred in the chilies and added the crackers and left the cheese melt on top. Yum.

    I made this and omitted the green chilies( Preference) and used Ritz was really good! Highly recommend it. Love fresh garden produce.
