I use a slicer to get even slices. I make my casserole using lengthwise slices, but casserole can be made using round slices. I prefer the lengthwise slices, the squash seems to stay crispier to me.

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 F. Slice squash & onions, this can be done night before, store in baggies in refrigerator.
