    My grandmother used to make this when I was a little girl. I have tried your recipe and it tastes just like Grandma’s. It’s wonderful!

    This recipe is fantastic and so cheesy. It doesn’t taste low-fat at all, it’s very rich.

    This recipe is wonderful. Doesn’t taste low fat at all. My husband said it was definately a keeper.

    my family loves this recipe. it is easy and very good. instead of bread crumbs, i use crushed fat free saltines on top.

    I thought that it was very good. I think that instead of boiling the squash and onions I would have preferred to saute them together first. Probably would have had more flavor but all in all I enjoyed. I give it a 9

    I have made this casserole twice now since my fresh squash has come in. The only changes I made was to steam my squash and onions in the microwave till tender, I use fat free cheddar cheese, and I use finely chopped “no fat” pretzels with a little Parmesan cheese on top. Delicious!!!!
