Cheesy Squash Bake

Submitted by: FLUTETUTOR

Introduction

My children used to balk at me every time I attempted to serve squash for supper. I was surprised when I introduced this dish as a side for oven-fried chicken. Everyone loved it. Not a bite was left. This dish was a springboard for my children learning to like squash in other recipes as well. Hope you enjoy it! My children used to balk at me every time I attempted to serve squash for supper.

Ingredients

    4 cups yellow squash - sliced
    4 cups zucchini squash - sliced
    1 cup onion chopped
    2 cloves of garlic chopped
    2 tsp olive oil
    2 15 oz cans of diced tomatoes - drained, but not mashed
    1 tsp ground oregano
    1tsp basil
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    2 cups low moisture part skim mozzarella cheese- shredded

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the squash, onion and garlic and saute for about 7 minutes (until squash is crisp tender). Drain off an excess juices.

Add in diced tomatoes, and seasonings. Mix gently, but thoroughly. Add 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese. Mix thoroughly. The cheese will become very stringy and will not mix in well, but should be evenly distributed throughout the mixture. Transfer the mixture to a large baking dish. Top with remaining cheese.

Cook at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and mixture is bubbly hot.

Makes 8 servings (about 1 cup each).
