You could be done with slaving away in the kitchen when a Saturday night could be just about a delicious cocktail and a movie. We have the solution and that is the squash casserole!
How would you like to go for a recipe that only requires an hour and serves about 6 people. Bigger family does not mean lots of food on the table and it does not definitely mean you have to spend too much of time in the kitchen. Try the squash casserole with the family this weekend!

Serves: 6 servings.
4 tbsp. butter, divided
2 lb. yellow squash, sliced into 1/2″coins
1 onion, chopped

Start with reheating the oven to 350°. Following that lightly grease a medium sized casserole dish.
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter.
Add in the squash and onion and cook, make sure you are stirring often. Continue this until the squash is tender. This will take about 8 minutes.
Stir in the garlic and season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
Transfer the mixture of contents to a colander that is set over a bowl and let it drain for about five minutes. Discard the liquid.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, and mayonnaise.
Follow this with stirring in the cheddar and Parmesan cheese and season the mixture with salt and pepper.
Gently fold in squash mixture then transfer mixture to the baking dish you prepared before.
Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in another pan and toss with Ritz crackers.
Sprinkle the cracker mixture over casserole. Bake until golden and bubbly. This will take about 20 minutes.
