    I served this dish for a change of pace on Thanksgiving....It was a huge hit. I have had several requests to make it again for our family Christmas dinner. I have a feeling I have started a new holiday tradition.

    I was a bit skeptical of this recipe but was pleasantly surprised by the end result. I must admit that I halved the recipe but used all 6 ounces of the turkey sausage making it a hearty main dish. Also substituted panko for the fresh bread crumbs as others suggested. I was most impressed with the yellow squash which maintained its crisp tender integrity despite being nuked and then baked. Looking forward to making it again for family and friends.

    Outstanding! This was easy and good - I just used one large pork sausage that I had in my fridge... Delicious!! I'll put it this way - it tastes guilty...

    Upped the sausage to 5 links and used panko on the top. It turned out great an made an excellent main dish.

    We didn't care for this casserole, but perhaps in part because of substitutions. I omitted the garlic and used sweet sausage (all my grocer had) and mozzarella.

    The taste was good; however, I don't know what happened with my squash. I cooked it as directed (in the microwave and then in the casserole) and the skin was grossly crunchy/waxy. It was completely inedible. Short of skinning the squash prior to slicing it, I don't know how to solve this issue. The sauce was good and it tasted good if you were willing to pick out the squash and nibble around the skin...

    I steamed the squash (less water retention) and added sauteed jalapenos and mushrooms. I've made this w/o the meat or with vegetarian sausage crumbles and it's still good. Served with Canadian bacon, roasted potatoes, and spinach salad.

    A wonderful dish, perfect for using up all the squash in my garden! I used 8 oz sausage as it was a main dish, sharp cheddar and monetary jack for the provolone, and panko for the breadcrumbs. I would add less panko next time, especially on the top- but maybe it was because I baked it in a large square dish instead of a casserole dish. Also the panko on top did not get browned and crunchy even though the dish was near the top of the oven so I broiled it for a few minutes. Everyone loved it though!
