In addition to squash and sweet onion, this casserole also has shredded carrot for a little color and extra flavor. A can of condensed cream of chicken soup makes it really creamy and hearty. Cream of Mushroom soup could be used instead.

American cheese slices are place on top of the squash. They melt and provide a mild cheese flavor and lots of creaminess.

To finish it off, a buttery stuffing layer adds so much flavor. It’s such a filling casserole it could be eaten as a main dish. In fact, you could add some shredded chicken and you would have a delicious main dish casserole.

I like to steam the squash and onions before adding them to the casserole since it only bakes for 30 minutes. Just until they are crisp-tender. This ensures they will be tender and soft in the finished dish.

Summer squash (yellow squash) is one of my favorite vegetables to cook with. Especially during the summer months. The fresh, young squash ( the smaller ones) are so tender and delicious!
