Summer Squash Dressing

"I serve with recipe#435267, roasted asparagus, coleslaw, and recipe#462312. Have made ahead and also have frozen prior to baking. I prefer baking in shallow layer so it is less soggy. I plan ahead by making 9 inch pan of cornbread day before and then using the leftovers for this. Melt butter in container big enough to hold other ingredients. I have subbed in zucchini also for this."

    What a delicious way to cook yellow squash, which we love. This dish could be made with a number of veggies. I think next time, I will add more liquid as it was a tad bit dry. But, it may have been the proportions I used as well. Will definitely make this dish again. Made for Culinary Quest, U. S. Southern Region, August, 2014.

    OMG! This is a really fantastic dressing. It may look like too much squash, but the squash cooks down quite a bit. I love the hint of thyme on the background. Made for PRMR.
