Five stars for easy and for flavor. The directions I think need to be adjusted for those NON cooks. First, peel the squash or not. I didn't, and wouldn't but my friend who was cooking me thought you should, she is a non cook. Second, why would you steam garlic. I simply pan sauteed the squash, onion and garlic on medium heat with just a little butter to soften. Same result. Third, mention the type of cheese or suggest one. I used a mix of monterey jack and cheddar, but there are many options which can really change the final flavor of the dish. Fourth, Onion ... how much, what size, 1/2 could be golf ball size to softball. I used a medium sized onion, but you may want to mention that Last ... Natures Seasoning? I know what you meant but many people don't. An all purpose or Ms. Dash or something similar. Try to give some alternatives for people to use. I also added additional salt and pepper. But I really enjoyed the flavor, as I am a big squash fan. It was very tasty and unique which I enjoyed. Again, loved the dish, but the recipe for a non cook I think needs to be more detailed. Thx for sharing

This was a delish low-carb side dish! My whole family enjoyed it. I added diced green chiles for an extra kick, it was fantastic!

Absolutely delicious comfort food and low carb to boot! This recipe is a winner and one that I will definitely make again. I pretty much followed the recipe as directed with the only changes being that: 1) I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. 2) I sauteed the onions in olive oil first 3) and I cut up the squash into medallions which I then steamed in the microwave for 3 minutes before putting them in the blender. 4) I also sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on the top of the dish. Delicious!

Excellent recipe! My husband was skeptical when I mentioned the mayo. In the end he said he could eat the whole pan by himself! It is a great low carb way to enjoy squash casserole! Thanks!

this recipe is fantastic.I sautee the onion and squash in an iorn skillet, with melted coconut oil. browns nicely. and sprinkle with real bacon bits. and sesason with "goya ham seasoning pack"
then transfer to baking dish. mix the other ing. and pour on top, then bake. a big suggestion for low carb cooks, use a product called "vegenaise" instead of mayonaise. the taste is the absolute best flavor and makes all the difference. also a very healthy product. enjoy!!!!!!!!!!

This was amazing and so easy. I prepared the squash on a pot with steamer insert and just through in the onion and garlic. Whipped up the rest of the ingredients with a hand mixer and combined in a pyrex dish. One tip I can give is to make sure to bake well or I can imagine it could be runny. I'm not a big fan of Mrs Dash so I used sea salt and ground pepper. To save additional fat I used 2% Cheddar and Reduced Fat mayo and I couldn't tell a difference. This is the way I will make my Squash casserole from now on! Thank you so much for the recipe!

Very delicious. Easy recipe. I used frozen squash slices. After steaming squash and onions, I used a masher to mash the squash and onions in the pot. Me and hubby really enjoyed it and I will make it again.

I grated the summer squash then steamed it with the onion in my microwave steamer. I did not put the other ingredients in a food processor, I just whisked them together with the garlic. My brother was recently diagnosed as being diabetic and we served this with fish and we all loved it. I will be making this again. Very good.

Great way to enjoy yellow squash! It's almost like a "custard" in texture. If you're used to the squash casseroles with the crushed crackers or croutons (like I am), this does have a little different taste and texture, but it's still delicious! Thanx for sharing!
