I do NOT like squash! It's just so bland and .... well, BLAND! But lemme tell you, I planted 8 squash plants and I have a TON of the stuff! I came across this recipe and thought, "What the heck? I'll try it!" ... boy am I ever glad I did! I didn't prepare very well, so had to substitute the Ritz crackers for the Townhouse Garlic and Herb "Flipsides" Pretzel Crackers. Either way, I know you can't go wrong with this recipe! It is SO yummy! I also don't like to measure things, so I just started mixing and it still turned out great ... so if I can make it I bet anyone can!!

Very good and very easy to make. I made this as written but decreased the butter just a little bit. I was tempted to add some cheddar cheese (just out of habit), but I didn't and I was happy with the end result. Thanx for sharing!
