The addition to cornbread sold me on this recipe. I used some croutons for the dry white bread. It was a bit of work, since I had to bake some cornbread for the recipe, but I liked that it yielded a large amount. My whole family ate (including son who hates squash!). This reheats nicely in the micro, too. Thanks Molly- Roxygirl
Our good friends gave us some of their squash from their garden. This is a good squash and zucchini recipe for such a bland tasting vegetable. I have made it twice; the second time I cut down on the amount of soup mixture. Thanks for posting. This is a recipe the famous Texas cafeteria shared in their 1996 50th Anniversary cookbook.
