The ingredients are simple, and the taste amazing… I just love the nice crunch the panko breadcrumbs impart to this dish. So yummy.

How to Make Easy Baked Yellow Squash

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE

  6. In a separate bowl, add the Parmesan cheese, panko breadcrumbs, paprika and salt and pepper (to taste), and thoroughly combine.

  8. Add the squash to a small ovenproof baking dish.
  9. Add the breadcrumb/Parmesan mix to the top.
  10. Cover with foil.
  11. Place in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  12. Remove the foil and continue to bake until the top of the squash begins to brown, about an additional 5 – 7 minutes.
