A squash casserole is a nutritious dish that can be prepared easily. As the name suggests, the main ingredient is squash, which has to be fresh. Some people use canned squash to prepare the dish, but fresh ones are always preferred for making casseroles. Apart from squash, you may use cheese, eggs, pecans, peppers, and other ingredients of your choice. As there are different types of squash that vary in flavor, make sure to use the specific type, that is mentioned in the recipe.

  • Pimiento - 1 jar (2 oz)
  • Salt and pepper - As per taste

Cook the squash slices, along with chopped onion. Drain them and keep aside. Melt the butter in a bowl, and add the stuffing mix into it. Mix them well, and remove half of this stuffing mix. Keep it aside. Add the other ingredients, like sour cream, chicken soup, salt, pepper, pimiento, and cooked squash, into the bowl. Combine them well. Take a casserole dish and put the prepared mixture into it. Top the mixture with the remaining stuffing, that is kept aside. Bake for around 30 to 40 minutes at 350°F.
