This Squash Casserole is a delicious low point side dish!
It’s full of flavor and has a great texture. The squash is somewhat tender and the panko gives it a nice crunch.
You only need a few ingredients for this recipe:
- Yellow squash
- Panko breadcrumbs
- Parmesan cheese, shredded
- Salt and pepper
If you don’t have shallot you can use onion instead.
Also, if you don’t want to use Parmesan cheese you can substitute it for another cheese.
I used a mandoline to slice the squash and zucchini. You want it about 1/4 inch thick. I think a mandoline is the best way to do this so all of the slices are the same size.
If you don’t have a mandoline you can use a knife, just try to make sure the slices are all the same size.
Once I had the squash and zucchini sliced I added it to a baking dish.
In a small frying pan I melted the butter and cooked the shallot and garlic. Then I poured that over the squash.
Mix together the panko breadcrumbs and cheese then evenly spread it over the squash.
I covered the dish with aluminum foil and popped it into the oven for 30 minutes.
Then I removed the foil and put it on broil for 5 minutes. That made the topping nice and golden!
