Squash Casserole

With the days heating up, I am starting to see glimpses of summer already at the markets. To my delight, I was able to pick up zucchini and grey squash my last go round and make one of my favorite summertime dishes, squash casserole, for supper last night. This squash casserole could be consider a delicious side, but is filling enough to be a lovely vegetarian main dish option. Super simple and super delicious, enjoy!

  2. Dang I love squash! I make something kinda like this with the egg– we don’t have any local out just yet here, though. In another month there will be so much that people will give it away ;) I have a recipe here somewhere for squash custard. It’s like dessert, but I think it’s sugar free… now I hafta find it!!

    1. I know, a lot of times the farmers will load me up with them when I buy something else, but we aren’t to that point yet here either. You hafta post about your sweet custard. Sounds delicious and interesting.
