      We thought this was very tasty. The only thing is that the milk & cheese didn't come together well for us, so it wasn't as pretty as the pictures. I did add diced tomatoes and jalapenos, but the squash flavor came through beautifully.

      I loved this recipe. Made no changes; used two zucchinis and two yel squash. It's really a pretty dish. I ate it as the main course with a salad. For some reason, I was wanting mashed potatoes with this. I think I'll make some to eat with the leftovers. This recipe goes into my favorites.
