This is the bomb!!! I left out the peppers and onions and used bread crumbs instead of stuffing mix. I also used half and half. Also I chopped the squash and put it in the oven in the mixture without cooking it first and it was fine in 45 minutes. Read More

Awful lot of work for not much reward. The flavor wasn't outstanding. If we do it again which is doubtful we'll use a whole acorn squash. Read More

The cream isn't necessary--milk works fine! I only had cherry tomatoes so I halved them and put them all across the top. It looked really pretty. This would be great to serve at Thanksgiving or Christmas. Read More

This was an interesting concocsion. I would make it again. I used butternut squash a regular skinned/seeded tomato and yellow onion beacause this was what I had on hand. I think acorn squash would probably have made made this even better. It tasted alot better the second day when I warmed it up for lunch. The flavors seemed to have melded. Read More

It's nice to find something different to do with squash. This was quite delicious and we will be making this again. I made it a little healthier by using crushed corn flakes instead of bread crumbs and evaporated milk in place of the heavy cream. I also added steamed zucchini with the squash. Read More

This was really good! It was much more interesting and less egg-y than I expected. We made this using yellow squash and bread crumbs because that's what we had. We only used about 1/2 cup bread crumbs (1/4 mixed in and 1/4 sprinkled on top). We also used a few more spices and quite a bit more feta cheese. YUM I will definitely make this again. Read More

I only made this recipe to get rid of a bunch of extra summer squash my garden produced but it was a surprise hit with everyone. We make it quite frequently now especially for potluck dinners and I can always rely on everyone to rave about it and ask for the recipe. I use a 50/50 mixture of Italian breadcrumbs and unflavored breadcrumbs instead of the stuffing mix. Great way to use up squash and zucchini! Read More

I didn't have any stuffing mix so I used fresh brench bread crumbs seasoned with sage and onion. It worked fine and the dish turned out great. My husband and I love this one! Next time I might add a little more feta just because we love the taste so much but it was great with the amount stated. Read More

This was delicious! I kind of had a hard time working with a raw squash... but there must be a trick I don't know about? I will absolutely make this again! Read More

Very tasty... savory rather than sweet. My family love simple baked squash with butter but get tired of the same dishes. I did not have the stuffing mix or green onions so I used bread crumbs and poultry seasoning with finely chopped onion. Since I was grilling chicken I put it in a greased cast iron skillet and set it on the grill beside the chicken. It worked great! My husband still prefers it baked with butter but this recipes gives the rest of us some variety. Will make again. Read More
