Summer Squash. I used one zucchini and two yellow squash. You can use all zucchini, all yellow squash, or any combination.
Cream of Mushroom Soup. I’ve tried this with Cream of Chicken as well. Either will work, but I prefer mushroom. In fact, I think I’m going to try adding mushrooms the next time I make it.
Monterey Jack Cheese. Monterey Jack melts so well that it’s perfect for this recipe. You can use Mozzarella, White Cheddar or any other cheese that’s your favorite.
Can You Grow Zucchini in Containers?
That’s the big question when it comes to growing plants for me. The land here is made up of a bunch of rock. If we grow anything, it’s usually in some sort of container.
Zucchini can easily be grown in a container. I prefer the bush type zucchini rather than the vining kind, just because it takes up less space and there seems to be less maintenance.
It takes about two months to go from seed to harvest. Find out How to Grow Zucchini in Containers at the Gardeners Path.

What to Serve with Zucchini
This Cheesy Zucchini Squash Casserole already has a lot going for it. There are times when I like to eat it alone with a side salad. It works great for barbecue cookouts. It’s perfect with grilled chicken.

Give these Bacon Wrapped Chicken Strips a try too. Because…. well, bacon!
If you have more zucchini, be sure to try this Zucchini Pasta Sauce.
Can You Freeze This Casserole?
I don’t recommend that you freeze because the texture changes completely. You will no longer have nice bites of squash. Instead, it may turn out to be a lackluster mash.
You can refrigerate it in an airtight container for 3-4 days. The breadcrumb topping won’t be as crispy.
Can You Make This Casserole Ahead of Time?
If you need to make the casserole ahead of time, make it up in the mixing bowl and store the covered mixing bowl in the refrigerator up to 1 day.
When you’re ready, proceed with putting it into a baking dish then top it with the breadcrumbs and butter. Bake as written.
