    Oh, My, Kathy-pie! Need more stars!!! This is sooo yummy! Since I cut the recipe for 2, used only summer squash, and used mayonnaise (2 Tbsp.) for the egg. Was afraid a large egg would be too much and, well, mayonnaise has eggs in it. (I've done this lots of times) Used Nacho Cheese Doritos in place of the tortilla chips. MMMMM...still thinking about how good this is. THX Made for Slide into Sides and the Casserole Challenge in Cooking Photos.

    This is the first squash casserole my husband has ever agreed to eat. The taco seasoning "covers up" the squash taste somewhat. So, if you're looking for a way to "hide" squash, try this recipe. If you love squash like I do, you might like a more traditional casserole better. But, I will certainly make this a keeper. I served this as the main entree along with some sauteed string beans and a crisp garden salad. I'm "allowed" one all-veggie meal per week and we enjoyed this one.
