Yellow Squash Recipes

Like most of Yellow Squash Recipes this easy squash casserole is bursting with taste and flavor.

Both summer and winter squashes are generally considered as vegetables, even though pumpkin may be used for sweet dishes. Though considered a vegetable in cooking, botanically speaking, squash is a fruit. Squash can be served fresh (in salads) but the most popular dishes are cooked (squash stuffed with meat, fried squash, baked squash casserole)..
