My Mom gave me this recipe. It's a different spin on the regular squash casserole.

This was really really good. It was like a squash nacho or something. Definitely something I will make again. Read More

I thought this recipe was just so-so. When I took this out of the oven I was kind of expecting something with a little more TASTE. This recipe was kind of bland. I even added more cheese because we are cheese freaks around here. The eggs also give it a really weird texture when baked. I don't think it is really worth your time to try it. I would not make it again. Read More

Think of this as a cornmeal crusted yellow squash quiche with and a crispy topping. 5 stars for ease, and the idea, but it needs help! I sauted the thinly sliced yellow squash with a chopped large onion and garlic till softened, I added cumin, cilantro, smoked paprika. I used a 7 oz can of green chilies, used only 1/2 of the cheese. I added a sliced garden tomato on top of the filling, before the extra chip topping. I served this with a fresh garden salsa, green beans and cucumber-tomato salad (most of our dinner came from our garden!) I made two 9" pies, and baked them for 30 minutes. I LOVE that I can use the broken tortilla chips in the bottom of the bag instead of making a bottom crust! Wish I'D thought of that, and will use the idea for other savory pies! Read More

This is easy and absolutely fantastic! Yellow squash was out of season so I used zucchini and it worked great. My 7 year old stepdaughter wasn't crazy about the squash but said if I made it with broccoli it would be "perfect!" I'm going to give it a try - seems like lots of different veggies would work! Thank you! Read More

I didn't have green chiles on hand so I added a can of Rotelle with tomato pepper and cilantro along with 1 tsp of red pepper flakes and chili powder. It was fantastic. My husband who hates squash but loves salsa even liked it. Read More

Out of eggs so subbed 3 C cottage cheese for milk and eggs. Added diced jalapenos in place of green chiles. Terrific casserole that seems to keep well in the fridge a day or two for lunches. Will definitely make again! Read More
