"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." — Paula

summer squash, sliced
chopped green bell pepper
salt and pepper to taste
shredded Cheddar cheese
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 had mix reviews from our dining room table from a one star to a four star so i will give it a three star but i personally wouldn't take the time to make it again. my husband thought it had tuna in it the pecans fooled him... LOL... so this is a recipe i could take it or leave it so i think i will leave it
great recipe!! i love it and so does the family! i use fat free cream cheese and fat free sour cream instead of mayo and i sometimes i dont have green peppers or nuts but its still great... also great for zucchini.
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!
The onion needs to be sauteed or cooked with the squash first - too crunchy when put in raw. Otherwise, great recipe.
This was delicious!!!! I didn't mash the squash, and I cut the mayo down to 1/3 cup and used Splenda instead of sugar. It was so tasty and easy I will be making again. But I have to say, I think 4-6 servings is more realistic than the 8-10 specified.
Very good. I used only 1 tbs. butter. Also just put in microwave 5 min at 70% power. Husband liked it so it passes the taste test.
We really liked this, which is good because we have a bunch of zucchini and summer squash coming in from our garden to use! I used a combination of each for this dish, steaming them for a few minutes. I did not mash them as I like a bit of crunch and they still were going to bake for 40 minutes. I did saute the onions to help distribute their flavor throughout the dish more. I balked at the idea of 1/2c mayo, but rationalized that I wouldn't be eating it all myself! Did everything else according to recipe, except sprinkled a bit of garlic powder over the mixture before baking and subbed crushed caesar croutons for the breadcrumbs. (Safeway's Salad Fixin's Caesar Croutons--in the gold package in the produce dept--are deLISH!) Thanks for the recipe, Paula.
