I have lots of squash and basil from the garden, need to use up, So I made squash casserole mixed with onion and basil,topping with mozzarella cheese, it was perfect summer casserole, this recipe is good with zucchini or add some tomato if you like.

- hand full of basil

- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 black pepper
- 1/2 tsp paprika powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- pinch of red flakes pepper

Preparation :
preheat oven on 350 F
grease casserole  baking dish with softened butter or baking spray
cut / large dice yellow squash and onion, put into greased baking dish and  top with fresh basil

I seldom make casserole because I am a typical Asian, I love only Asian food.

Anyway, I love the cheese topping on top, what more after the baking process, it looks good.

So colorful and pretty! This would have been a great use for my leftover egg whites--instead I made boring scrambled egg whites.
