“This is a recipe that my Southern mother-in-law gave to me, her Yankee daughter-in-law! Zucchini or yellow summer squash may be used together, or interchangeably to create this delicious casserole! Use bread crumbs, crushed crackers or cheese for the topping.” - by Paula
Original recipe yields 8 to 10 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add squash, and cook until tender. Drain well.
