    I wonder if anyone out there has a recipe for a yellow (or zucchini) squash recipe that is a little different..maybe something with meat or other veggies in it. We have SSSOOO much squash that our daughter promised to take (she planted them) but hasn't and we don't like it very much. We need to disguise it somehow! LOL! Help?

    Not a casserole, but you could use it in place of zucchini in these 2 recipes,
    Zucchini Linguine
    Zucchini Alfredo

    I like yellow and zucchini mixed for color ~

    In an iron skillet, I cook about 3 lbs sliced squash til tender, with 2 large onions chopped, and salt and pepper ~ sometimes I add red pepper flakes or cayenne for a little kick. I cook the mixture until most of the moisture is gone and the onions have caramelized ~ cool slightly and add 3 beaten eggs, 1 tablespoon yellow mustard, and 2 cups shredded sharp cheese. Sometimes I top the casserole with buttered bread crumbs ~ I don't like squash casseroles with cracker or bread crumbs, or milk mixed-in with the squash, because you end up with a puffy airy casserole!

    Bake for 30-45 minutes at 350F ~ time varies due to casserole dish used. Larger shallower dishes take less time to bake ~

    Luby's Cafeteria Mixed Squash Casserole

    Freezing Summer Squash

    Wash and cut into 1/2-inch slices.

    Place 6 cups of squash at a time in a blancher basket or saucepan of 1 gallon of boiling water and blanch for 3
    minutes after the water returns to a boil.

    Drain immediately in colander or basket used for blanching and cool in ice water with cold water from faucet running over vegetable to preserve ice.

    Package in freezer containers leaving 1/2-inch headspace.

    Seal, label, and freeze.

    You can also can Zucchini Pineapple (Faux Pineapple) U S D A out of your abundance.

    Not the most healthy - but OH SO GOOD! My dad would cut it into 1/2 inch slices - then quarter those. Fry low and slow (takes forever because the squash has so much moisture in it) with 1/2# of fresh bacon, chopped, until it resembles hash brown potatoes - YUMMO!

    Oh wow!! Thanks so much for suggesting all of your favorites and I plan on trying several of them over the summer. Today, however, I did find one, #92118, Chicken Yellow Squash Casserole, which we both absolutely loved. You couldn't "taste" the squash very much and it was so easy. Thanks again....I really appreciate it.

    I was wondering if and how to freeze these darn things so thanks. What are they like when defrosted? Mushy? And can you just use them in any recipe? I sound like such a dope icon_redface.gif but I've never eaten any kind of squash and only used zucchini for bread/cakes etc. This is all new to me!

    The texture of thawed is nothing like the texture of the fresh, Patti, but you can saute them in some butter with salt/pepper. I think you'll be pleased with the result.

    The girls in the Canning/Preserving forum tell me that they shred the squash and freeze in one-cup portions without blanching for later use in zucchini bread and cake, but these are the directions from the Extension Service:
    Grated zucchini (for baking)
    Choose young tender zucchini.
    Wash and grate without peeling.
    Steam blanch in small quantities for 1 to 2 minutes until translucent.
    Drain well and pack in containers in amounts needed for recipes.
    Cool by placing the containers in cold water.
    Seal and freeze.
    If watery when thawed, drain the liquid before using the zucchini.

    Make lasagne casseroles to freeze, but use thin planks of blanched or, even better, GRILLED squash instead of noodles.

    Everyone loves when I make my Zucchini & Yellow Squash Casserole, even people who don't usually like squash. I have given this recipe to so many people; it is kind of like my "signature dish" in the summer.......Debbie
