Easy Squash Casserole. Delicious, easy recipe and also great for making ahead if you wish. Freezer friendly.

Let me introduce to you Nanny Pat! She's got a great story about her Squash casserole so take it away Nanny Pat!

"It is one of our (family & friends) most loved veggie recipes...and one we have quite often, not just holidays...I make it even for hubby & I, so I can freeze a couple of 2 portion casserole dishes, and it is ready to Pop in a cold oven, and then reheat, or thaw and nuke it.
Recipe by Pat Milton

You remember how much hubby likes nuts, so of course he thinks this is a Super "Squash Casserole", and one of his favorite veggies. I have been making it for 37 years, and I thought it might spur people to post more veggie recipes. When our kids were young (they are 47 1/2 and 50 now), they swore that I just put nuts on it, for Hubby and I kept saying, that is how the recipe was given to me, and then when grandchildren came into our world, our only grandson when young, would say when he saw it come out of the oven, "Is this dessert or what"?? We haven't been having too many Potatoes lately, because hubby doesn't think he needs the Carbs (I Love potatoes), so having extra veggies is ideal."

Nanny's Notes:
For the holidays, I double this recipe, and I still use this casserole dish (it is just thicker), so adjust to your liking.
It is easily adapted to your tastes.
I also love, that I can get ready ahead of time, refrigerate, then bake.
Freezes well too. Hope you will try and enjoy, and let me know if you liked it...Love Nanny Pat

    1. Hope you will like it, and as I said before, you can adjust it to your taste buds…but hubby doesn’t like me to change the recipe at all…Our son was born on my BD, and we had a super celebration this year, he being 50 and well, my being 70…I do know one thing….Old age, isn’t for Sissies, and loving every day, more & more…Life is a Journey, not a Destination…Have met so many new friends through Mary (lovefoodies), and I believe we are all better off, sharing…<3 NH.
