Squash and Zucchini Casserole (Lightened)
We have enjoyed this casserole for years, but since we are trying to eat better. I made a lightened version and took out alot of the fat and calories. That way we can enjoy this and not have to suffer the consequences later.

Yummy yummy!!! This received immediate rave reviews from my family. My DH said it was so nice to have a change from my standard steamed or grilled squash & zucchini. I did not have cornbread stuffing mix so just used a chicken stuffing mix that worked fine! Thanks for a great recipe that I'll be making often! Tagged in Went to the Market Game Apr08Reply
