zucchini and squash casserole

Zucchini n Yellow Squash Casserole

Fresh chopped zucchini and yellow squash casserole make up the main ingredients in this side dish. Topped with some shredded mozzarella and crushed cracker crumbs. Easy to make and the dish looks amazing.

I chose to keep the skins on the squash prior to cooking. This is really your choice as it does not affect the taste of the casserole if you remove the skins. Just use a sharp knife or a peeler to remove them and then slice the zucchini.

Shredded zucchini I like to store in the freezer especially when my garden produces too much during the summer. More than I can use each day! But, I have not had luck with chopping the zucchini and then storing it in the freezer for later use. Zucchini has a lot of water in it. But, I think you could use shredded zucchini or even zucchini noodles for this Zucchini and Yellow Squash Casserole recipe! 

You’ll need a 9 by 9 casserole dish.  If you are needing to serve a larger group feel free to use a larger 9 by 13 dish and just double the recipe.  I know we all end up with a basket full of zucchini’s and squash during the summer if we have a garden or have family that do.  Perfect recipe to help use them up!
