Cut the recipe in half, followed exactly but really just too blah for us. I think I wish I would have followed Parsley and added cheese but then this gets just like so many others. Thx for posting however!

This was excellent! I used one large zucchini and 3 small summer squash (which boiled away to nothing but seeds), and this served 4 of us. Even our kids ate it. I did add some cheddar cheese to the top of the breadcrumbs before baking. Thanks for sharing!

This was soooooo good! Total comfort food! I must admit, as I was making it, I had my doubts. The key to this is to really drain the cooked squash really really well...get all the water out. I boiled my chopped onion with the squash. I also added about 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the mashed squash. The top got nice and brown. I could easily eat this all by itself for a meal. Kids loved it. I'm gonna make this often!! Thanx for sharing it!
