This casserole doesn't even taste like squash. I use half yellow squash and half zuccini. I also add 1 1/2 cups baked chicken. It is delicious! Real easy to make also.

Excellent. This is a good replacement for dishes like scalloped potatoes without the fat and calories. I substituted aborio rice because of its creaminess and lower calories compared to brown or white. I also used egg substitute to further lower the fat and calories. Thanks for posting.

This is a wonderful recipe that even has my son who is hesistant about zucchini going back for seconds. (I use basmati rice in all my rice recipes.) I sometimes make it the day before it is to be served as the family likes it the "next" day best.
