I found this recipe on because I needed to do something with my almost free squash. I couldn't even tell you if it was summer squash or what kind, but I read squash are interchangeable in terms of flavor and figured what the heck! I left out the 1/4 cup of butter by mistake and didn't notice it was missing. I used walnuts in place of pecans, probably 1/2 c of bell pepper and 1 c of red onion, and well 2 cups of cheese (oops, I know, a little excessive). Very tasty little number! Thank you for posting this!
