Squash and basil casserole


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.

If you have leftover egg whites it's work for the recipe too

  1. 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.

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