yellow squash casserole


summer is coming to a close and i wanted to savor some of my favorite summer recipes. everyone loves a squash casserole and this one is perfect. it’s just enough for four servings and the jalapenos add a little kick! This recipe is a little bit lighter than others but doesn’t skimp on flavor! It comes in at about 250 calories per serving, which makes it a sensible indulgence!

serves four

2 yellow squash sliced thin

½ vidalia onion diced

⅛ cup pickled jalapenos diced

¼ milk

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

½ sleeve ritz crackers crushed

2 tablespoons butter

melt 1 tablespoon butter in a pan

saute onions until translucent

saute squash until tender

add in jalapenos

place mixture in a casserole dish

top with cheddar cheese

heat milk in a pan until bubbles form around the edges

drizzle milk over casserole

top with crushed ritz crackers

melt one tablespoon butter and drizzle over the top of casserole

bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden brown and bubbly

Cheers! - lh
