Ingredients
  Yellow squash 2 Cup (32 tbs), washed and diced into half inch cubes
  Squash zucchini 2 Cup (32 tbs), washed and diced into half inch cubes
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tablespoon (For Cooking Squash)
  Onion 1 Medium, chopped
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tablespoon (For Sauteing Onion)
  Sour cream 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Shredded sharp cheddar cheese 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Ground black pepper To Taste
  Garlic powder To Taste
  Cooking oil spray 1
  Ritz crackers 4 Ounce, made into crumbs (1 Inner Packet)
  Butter 3 Tablespoon, melted
Directions

Cook the 4 cups of yellow and zucchini squash in 1 tablespoon of olive oil over low heat until soft, about 20 minutes. Place the cooked squash into a colander that has been lined with paper toweling. When cool enough, squeeze the paper toweling to absorb any excess oil and liquid from the cooked squash. In a medium-sized, deep skillet, saute the chopped onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil over low heat until clear, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Now, add the cooked squash to the sauteed onions, and stir around. Add in 1/3 cup sour cream and 2/3 to 3/4 shredded Cheddar cheese, stirring well after each addition.. Stir in salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Pour the mixture into a deep dish pie plate (or similar oven-proof dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil). Make your topping: Mix Ritz cracker crumbs with melted butter, to get a nice consistency for a crumb topping. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the top of your casserole. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes, until the casserole is bubbly and the crumbs are beginning to brown. Note: This is just a small-sized recipe for you to try.--about 4 servings. If you need more, just double the recipe and use a 13 x 9 x 2-inch casserole dish, and increase the cooking time a bit. You will never regard squash as a bland vegetable, after you try this! Enjoy!!!
