Norma's Great Zucchini & Yellow Squash Casserole

Norma DeRemer


With my garden thriving this year I'm using up some of my Zucchini and Squash next weekend when the family is due in from Seattle. Haven't found a family member or friend that doesn't like this dish. My Son-in-law will come in and eat it cold from the frigerator if there is any leftovers. I've had it on my cooking site for years now and always get a good response from other people trying it. It takes a little time to make, but all your effort is worth it.
