Summer Suash and Zucchini Casserole

IMG_4075

I love summer squash and zucchini. I also love casseroles. Combine the two with a bit of cheese and it is like heaven in a casserole dish!

This recipe I found at http://southernfood.about.com/od/zucchinirecipes/r/r100611a.htm

Mind you, I increased my measurements in the picture because I only had large summer squash and zucchini, so the ingredients in the list below is what you actually need and not my increased measurements.

Ingredients

3 Small Zucchini; about 2 1/2 lbs sliced

3 Small Summer Squash; about 2 1/2 lbs sliced

1/2 Tsp Kosher Salt

1/4 Tsp Black Pepper

1/2 Cup Chicken Broth OR Water

1 Garlic Clove; minced

4 Tbsp Butter; cubed

4 Tbsp Bread Crumbs; I used panko but Italian seasoned bread crumbs would probably work best.

4 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
