This squash casserole had great flavors and colors running thourh it with the red and green bell peppers. Next time this is made, I will start cooking my squash first and then saute the peppers and onions since it cooked up much faster than the squash. I liked the pecans in the squash but did not care for the bread crumbs on the top. I think I will mix the bread crumbs into the casserole next time before baking. Thanks for posting this recipe. Adopted for PAC April 2008.
