I can only eat so many "zoodles" and this was the perfect dish to give my spiralizer a break :) Loved this recipe - super budget friendly, too!

This is a really great recipe. We tried this a few nights ago and I was very pleased with how it turned out. My wife peeled the squash before slicing it, which made a difference in how it tasted. We also used the bacon-flavored Ritz crackers as the topping, plus we added some chorizo sausage (the Johnsonville brand) and it made for a very, very tasty dish. Thanks for contributing this!

I feel that squash is one of those tricky Veggies that has a high chance of being cooked incorrectly however I feel that this casserole recipe is key to cooking nice and firm squash.
