My Mom gave me this recipe for The Ultimate Squash Casserole. She clipped it out of the paper a million years ago. She found it the last time I was at her house and we were looking at recipes. I love finding old recipes to try!

OMG! This was SO good! Seriously the best squash casserole we’ve ever eaten. Loaded with squash, bell pepper and onions. The house smelled so good while the veggies were cooking in the skillet! My favorite part of the casserole was the cheese. It really put the casserole over the top! This was super simple to make and could even be assembled ahead of time and baked later that day or the next day. This would be a great side dish for any summer cookouts and even the holidays!

  1. Love squash!! A teaspoon of salt seems like a lot, so would it be ok to reduce the amount? And where is it added, in sautéing the vegetables or in the cream soup mixture?

  2. Can this be made the night before and then baked the next morning? If so, would that change the baking time? Thanks!

    1. You can do that. You will probably need to add 5 or 10 minutes to the baking time if baking straight out of the fridge

    1. Brie- you want to crush the boullion cubes up. If you want to dissolve them, only use a tablespoon of hot water. You don’t want to add extra liquid to the casserole
