I could die and go to heaven right now, having succumbed to culinary bliss. I used 'space ship' squash (small, yellow summer squash) and followed the recipe, but I added a few things. Following the advice of previous raters, I cooked mine for about 40 minutes. I added a drizzle of olive oil, sliced red pepper, fresh garlic, and a sprinkle of basil. Additionally, I had some green chille pepper from my garden that I diced and through in. The result was beyond delicious and so easy! Read More

Made this last night. I took the advice of a previous reviewer and alternated zucchini and yellow squash. This had no flavor and my husband told me to not make it again that it was a waste. Read More

This was good. I added peppers and onions as suggested along with some rosemary tossed the veggies in olive oil and omitted the butter. It took longer than the recommended time to cook and I ended up raising the oven temperature to 450 to hurry it along since the rest of my meal was ready and waiting. Read More

My husband and I really liked this. I did modify it a little but just by adding a few spices. I used a little bit of garlic salt sprinkled over the squash as well as some cracked black pepper. I spread the zucchini in a single layer on the pan but with a little bit of overlap so I could fit more squash in. Yum! Read More

I've made this recipe three times now and love it. It's a big hit at pot lucks and a great way to use up my abundance of summer squash. We like it with just yellow squash or alternating with zucchini. We're spice lovers so I took advice of other reviewers and added some diced onion, 1-2 cloves diced garlic, dried basil (to taste), half a diced red chili or jalapeno (depending on what's laying around), 1/3 diced red pepper, and cut the butter in half. It turns out perfect every time. Thanks for this super easy & fantastic recipe! Read More

I chose to take the advice of the recipe submitter and alternated zucchini and squash as well as a bit of diced red bell pepper for a bit of colour. I knew I wanted it to have some seasoning so I added some garlic powder & italian seasoning to the parmesan cheese mixture. This was good! Read More

No need for real butter. Save the calories and use spray butter. It came out great! YUM!! Read More

This was delicious! I tried to cut back on the butter just putting a smidge on each piece of squash. Next time I'll try to spray with olive oil and use the cheese. Read More
