Kim, this is a great squash casserole! I am used to the stuff you get at Black eyed pea or Luby's. I thought cheese would take away from the clean tasty beauty of squash but I loved it and my little bro did too. I sauteed the squash and onions and halved the recipe and it still came out great. I might even try making this for myself one night as a main dish with a salad.-thnx sarah

Always a favorite! I used some "end-of-the-box" Ritz crackers. YUM!

Good not a 10 to me though--not sure if I did everything correct because I felt directions could have expained more-- for instance-- chop squash? Chopped onion? etc..
