Yellow Squash Bake

For the last few weeks we have been participating in a produce co-op. You sign up weekly, and for $15 pick up a giant basket full of produce. It is split between fruits and vegetables, and it is a huge amount of food. Both a fun and challenging thing about it is that you don't pick what you get. So I'm trying to be a bit more adventurous and actually try my vegetables. Tonight I made a casserole with yellow squash that I truly enjoyed. I even had seconds!

4 cups sliced yellow squash
1/2 cup chopped onion
A tube of Ritz, crushed
1 cup shredded cheddar
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste
2 tbl butter

Put squash and onion in a skillet, with a bit of water on top. Cover. Cook over medium until tender. Drain well, and place in a large bowl.

Mix together cracker crumbs and cheese. Stir half of cracker mixture into the squash and onions. Mix together eggs and milk and add to squash mixture. Stir in the 1/4 cup of melted butter. Add salt and pepper.

Spread into a 9x13.

Sprinkle with remaining cracker mixture, and dot with the 2 tbl butter.

Bake at 400 for 25 minutes.
