Italian Yellow Squash Casserole

Side Dishes



6 medium yellow squash
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 small red onion, diced
1 (12-oz.) can evaporated milk
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend


Cut yellow squash into 1/4-inch or thinner slices. Place butter and onion in a saucepot over medium-high heat, and sauté until lightly caramelized, about 5 minutes. Whisk together evaporated milk and flour, and add to the saucepot, stirring frequently. Bring to a rapid simmer and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir Parmesan cheese, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper into the thickened sauce. Place sliced yellow squash and Italian cheese blend into a slow cooker and pour the thickened sauce over top. Stir to evenly distribute sauce. Set the cooker to High, cover and let cook 2 hours. Serves 6.
  Optional: Use a combination of both sliced yellow squash and zucchini, and stir in 1/4 cup diced roasted red peppers before cooking to add more color and flavor.
