In this post I am sharing how to make a simple Squash Casserole Recipe.

I love yellow squash, also referred to as summer squash or crookneck squash. This simple casserole recipe is easy to put together making it a perfect side to a meal any day of the week.

I remember the first time that I ever had squash casserole. It was at granny’s house and I helped her make it. Granny was the carefree grandmother who allowed kids to help in the kitchen.
 
Granny and I threw together the squash casserole and she was just as pleased as could be with how delicious it turned out.
