This is SO good that we often have only this for supper so that we can eat lots of it. The recipe was given to us by a family member with years and years of experience cooking for huge crowds. It is especially scrumptious when the squash is garden-fresh.

I chose this recipe for Spring Pac 2007. My family really liked it and it was different than many of the other squash recipes I've tried. My dd loved it and even my picky dh like it. I made it just the way it was written. Thanks for sharing!

We liked the flavor of this squash. I added the extra cheddar cheese to the top. Even my son-in-law who usually won't eat squash liked it. Thanks JKC. Bullwinkle
