    Awesome! It's amazing how much better gruyere makes a squash casserole over the usual cheddar cheese. This is just over five ingredients and that makes it quick and easy to make. I used reduced fat mayo and reduced fat crackers. It was still cheesy and delicious. Thanx for sharing!

    We have made this numerous times and it is absolutely amazing! Even the picky eaters in our family love it. Gruyere can sometimes be hard to find or expensive so I have substituted Gouda on occasion and it's good too. I'd give more than 5 stars if I could.

    We love baked squash dishes and this one did not disappoint. The nutty flavor of the gruyere cheese really makes this dish. Will definitely make this again! Made for Spring PAC, April, 2012.
