This Parmesan Squash Casserole is a terrific dish for a potluck or anytime! Everyone loves it.
Momma Betty’s Parmesan Squash Casserole is the best!
Don’t you wonder what to do with all that squash in the summer? All of a sudden, you have tons of it. Well, Momma Betty’s Parmesan Squash Casserole is one of the best casseroles to help you use it up. It’s a super good vegetarian casserole. I make it gluten free and use Pecorino Romano (sheep’s cheese), which has a different protein than cow’s milk so I’m not allergic to it. The casserole flavor is outstanding—a little Italian seasoning and parmesan or pecorino romano cheese, onions and summer squash. Delish!
I found this recipe in my mother-in-law’s “La Casserole” book of hand-written recipes. Don’s mom—we call her Momma Betty—had about 10 or 12 “squash casseroles” in her various clipping and recipe files. Of all of them, this is our absolute favorite. We loved it when she made it for us, and everyone we share it with always raves about it.
Which Recipe Is It?
The problem with the recipe for us was: exactly which squash casserole was the one we liked? So now we know. It’s this one! We love it. I hope you do, too.
Simple ingredients, takes just a few minutes to prepare and sauté the onions and squash, and then all you need is a beautiful casserole dish (affiliate link). Bake 40 minutes.
Do You Have Health Issues?
I do! If I eat gluten or cow’s milk (in most forms), my inflammation and digestive issues return. I’m so glad I healed myself with food. You might be interested in my story. And my new book, It Ain’t Just The Diet Journal, might help you improve your health like it did mine.
What You Need
