I too got this recipe from Paula Dean's Lady and Son's cook book. This is a great and easy recipe. I did change a few things though. I only used summer squash and I cooked my onion in with my squash to cut back on butter. I also add a little chicken boilion to my squash while it is cooking. Then I used 2% sharp chedder, reduced fat sour cream and whole wheat ritz crackers. These changes had very little impact on the great flavor, but a big impact on calorie intake. Great recipe thanks for posting!

Since my childhood i have LOVED food and cooking. Anything associated with food and cooking. I have an extensive collection of recipes, numbering around 50,000 from various cookbooks, friends and family members that have passed them along. I spend a lot of time cooking and gardening. I am currently working on starting my own catering business out of my home and love incorporating other families recipes in with my own. Right now my husband is the main taste tester. Our son is too young to try anything, but my husband can't wait until he can help eat things. My husband jokes i will need to give birth to a football team to put away the amount of food i cook for him to try. We live in North Carolina and both work for the same company as Networking Engineers.
