    This is an easy and delicious side dish. Was looking for something different to make with yellow squash and I got rave reviews from everyone that ate it. Even my kids went back for seconds! I sauteed the squash and onions together until they were soft and then threw everything together and popped in the oven to basically melt the cheese and brown the top. It probably took only 20 minutes in the oven. Yummmy!

    This was really good. The only thing I changed about it was I took some of the round buttery crackers and crushed them on top "after" it came out for some texture. This is definitely something I will be making again.

    LOVE IT! We've had it 3 times in a week! I've found that you have to cook it right away because it gets soggy if you leave it sit before placing it in the oven.

    I really liked this dish but I feel it could have been more creamy than soggy. That may have been Chef Error on my part. I made it twice to make sure. The second time I made it I used cheddar, swiss and muenster cheeses. It was delish!!

    I thought this recipe was very tasty. I did add garlic and more cheddar cheese. I will possibly cut the squash into smaller pieces as well as add parmesean cheese when i make it next. My husband loved it.
