We both enjoyed this recipe a lot. It is fluffier than other squash casseroles I've tried. I used yellow squash and added diced red pepper for color right before pouring the mixture into a pan. Because I made a reduced amount the casserole was fairly thin and cooked a little quicker. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Yummmmm! I decided I wanted lots of texture, so didn't mash much. I diced the zucchini and halved the recipe. So good! Thanks Parsley! Made for Photo tag.
