    Loved this. I added some cheddar cheese too. <br/>Next time I am going to seed my yellow squash. The ones I had were too seedy and messed up my dish...which otherwise was super!! <br/>Thanks for sharing.

    YUMMY!!! I threw in one zucchini because I didn't have enough yellow squash and we all thought it added some nice color. I used a level teaspoon of black pepper which my husband & I really liked, but was a bit much for our kids. I also used Panko breadcrumbs which I sprinkled on top without any butter. Thanks for sharing!
