Mama’s Easy Squash (or Zucchini) Casserole

Is there a recipe your mom made when you were growing up that is just nostalgic for you? That’s this squash casserole for me! My mama made this super easy dish to help us be able to enjoy the taste of squash that none of us had much of a liking for. Now, I love squash, but I still enjoy making this recipe when we have a holiday or a big party!

I also made this dish with zucchini that I had on hand the other night, and boy was it good! I almost think it was even better! So keep in mind that you can do this recipe with squash, zucchini, or even both! It just depends on what you prefer + what you have on hand.
