This was delicious. I made it just as instructed. The fresh corn was a delightful addition. Nothing more to say--just really good!!

Soft, white breadcrumbs double as a feather-light binder and golden crumb topping. To make them, pulse torn slices of day-old sandwich bread in the food processor.
Yield: Makes 8 to 10 servings
- 1 1/2 pounds yellow squash, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
- 1 1/2 pounds zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
