  1. I made the summer squash casserole last night, this was super easy and very yummy! I packed it full of squash and instead of the patty pan squash (my grocery store did not have any of these)I use a zucchini. I used the Texas Cornbread recipe for the casserole breading and it turned out really great. I got my corn bread a little spicyer than I like by adding too many jalepenos, but other than that, it was great!

  2. made this a few weeks ago and it was great! the one thing i didn’t do that i should have is make sure that the squash gets fairly soft before adding garlic, chicken stock, etc. otherwise, a really great recipe and the cheese on top really seals the deal!
