I’ve come to think that my Mother-in-law and I are kindred spirits when it comes to good food.

In general we both like the same kinds of dishes.

Well…with the exception of mushrooms.



Yellow Squash Casserole



Which she loves, but I don’t much care for.

And I always know that the dishes my husband will stick his nose up to {like this one} is indeed she and I will LOVE.

And it’s true.



Yellow Squash Casserole



We LOVED this dish.

This yellow squash casserole has only a handful of ingredients.

It takes 35 minutes to make and is all done in a single pan.

It really doesn’t get much easier than that.

But the best part is that it goes great with ANY main dish.

Serve it for Thanksgiving or Christmas, with your pot roast or even pork loin.



Yellow Squash Casserole



This yellow squash casserole goes great with all of them.

It’s one of my all time favorite ways to eat yellow squash!

This last time I made it, my mother-in-law, myself and my 10 month old ate the entire pan (over two days).



Yellow Squash Casserole



We were both surprised by how much my 10 month old loved it.

Despite her loving it, we still can’t quite get my other two kids to try it!

One day though they too will love this as much as we do!



Yellow Squash Casserole



It’s healthy without tasting healthy!

Ok, maybe the butter and cheese are pushing the “healthy” aspect, but it is still a tasty way to enjoy your vegetables!

This is a fabulous dish to use up squash from the garden or even the purchased ones.

If you are anything like me, this will quickly become a must make dish when your garden is ripe for the picking!.

If you want to really spice it up, add a little diced bacon to the initial squash and onion sauté and magic will happen with your taste buds!

    • Hi Pat! Thanks for pointing this out! I’ve updated the recipe. I use a 12 inch deep skillet. However you can make it in another pan and then transfer it to a 9×13 casserole dish to cook too. Great question!
