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.

Prepared today without the sugar, saw no need for it. Made as is except I doubled for my crowd and did add another 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese. The only change I would make when preparing again would be to not mash the squash; I believe it would be tastier non-mashed.

This is a wonderful recipe. First I laid the slices of squash on paper towels, salted them lightly and let sweat for 2 hours, then I carmalized the onions. Then I followed the procedure topping with the bread crumbs mixed with some freshly grated parmesan cheese. Delicious!
