Boil squash. While squash is boiling brown 1 lb. sausage. Drain grease off of sausage and place it back in the skillet. Once squash is cooked, drain the liquid and put squash in skillet with sausage mixture and stir.

This is one of those dishes that lets you know that the seasons have changed, finally. Winter squash, which includes pumpkin, acorn, Hubbard, turban, butternut, and so many more, are all so very good in their own right, but this is so good.

Zucchini Casserole

1 box (7 or 8 oz.) seasoned stuffing mix
4 medium unpeeled Zucchini (cut in 1/2 inch slices)
3/4 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 T. Oleo/margerine
Additional 1/2 stick of margerine
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup sour cream
salted water enough to cover zucchini slices

Cook Zucchini in salted water to tender crisp. Drain and reserve the liquid.
Cook carrots and onion in the 4 T. oleo until tender crisp.
Remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 cups of the stuffing mix.
Add sour cream and Cream of Chicken soup. Mix well.
Fold in zucchini. (if too thick or dry add some of the reserved liquid)
Dump into baking dishe(s). (judge about depth of 9 X 13 pan)

Melt the 1/2 stick of margerine and add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of stuffing mix. Coat well.
Spread over the zucchini mixture.
Bake 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

You may add cooked chicken or cubed ham if desired.
This makes a large amount and it freezes unbaked wonderfully well IF you add the buttered stuffing mix to the top when bringing it out of the freezer to bake it.

I first tried this dish (or one very similar) when I was a little girl attending my family's Baptist Church weekly supper. I have tried to get the recipe for years and finally decided to recreate it by trial and error. I believe I finally did it. By testing other squash casserole recipes and adding the ingredients that I remember being in it, I finally came up with a wonderful, crowd pleasing dish!


  • 3 lbs. yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 lb. zucchini, sliced
  • 3 medium onions, sliced
  • 4 large carrots, grated
  • 4-8 oz. pimentos (jar)
  • 1 or 2 cans sliced water chestnuts
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cups crushed reduced fat Ritz or Townhouse crackers
  • 6-8 oz box of seasoned stuffing
  • Pam spray
  • 1/4 cup melted margarine
  • 1 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1-2 cups grated sharp cheddar or cheddar/jack cheese


Preheat over to 350 degrees F.

Slice the squash, zucchini, and onions and place in a large pot with enough water to fill the post halfway. Add one teaspoon salt. Bring to boil for about 5 minutes. You can cook them more or less depending upon desired consistency. I like mine a bit firmer since they will finish cooking in the oven later. Drain all liquids.(I keep mine and use it for a vegetable soup base)

Spray 9 by 13 inch baking dish with Pam. Line pan with about one inch of stuffing mix. Melt margarine and drizzle over stuffing mix. I like to take about a full handful of the stuffing and add it directly to the squash mix for added texture. I also omit the margarine to cut down on calories and fat.

In a mixing bowl add the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, mayonnaise, pimentos, carrots, handful of stuffing mix, black pepper, and water chestnuts. Mix together. Add squash, zucchini and onions, blend gently.

Pour entire mixture over stuffing in the pan. Spread evenly, Top with shredded cheese and remaining crushed crackers.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

You can make this healthier by omitting the margarine, using reduced fat crackers, sour cream, and mayonnaise, and using fat free/sodium reduced cream of chicken soup.

It makes lots and freezes very well; popular at church suppers.
