Cream Cheese Basil Summer Squash Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 6)
Reviewed: May 28, 2004
Awesome recipe! I couldn't stop eating it! I pan fried the squash and there was no liquid to drain off. I used fresh basil instead of dried, and only 1/2 a pkg of cream cheese and it was so very very yummy and so easy to do! This is the way I'll do my summer squash from now on. Thank you!

I love recipes that don't require measuring. You can easily tailor this recipe to whatever you have on hand. After the squash cooked for 5 minutes, I drained off the liquid, added some cubed cream cheese (about 3 oz.), fresh basil and shredded extra sharp cheddar. Then I microwaved it for another minute. Next time I will mix the basil with the squash before topping with the cheeses, and I'll add more garlic. Those garlicky bites were especially delicious! I might also try it with tomatoes or only tomatoes.

Yummy! I changed it a little...I drained the water from the squash after cooking it, then I mixed in half a can of Rotel tomatoes & gr. chiles, then put in the cream cheese, melted it for a little bit, then added shredded sharp cheddar. Wow. It is good.

I knew from looking at the ingredients this had the potential for a great recipe. I was right. It is delicious. I used two smaller crookneck squash, 4oz of cream cheese, garlic powder and fresh basil from the garden. I cooked the squash in the microwave 5 1/2 minutes, cubed the cheese over it and let it set about three minutes, sprinkled on a dash or two of garlic, put in some fresh basil to taste and salt. It was absolutely divine!!!!

It was good but I don't think I'll make this again. I prefer squash to be more sweet (with brown sugar for example) and this recipe was more savoury.

Sorry, but this recipe bombed. Cooked for only 6 minutes, squash was mushy which caused the entire dish to be watery & unedible.
