RECIPE: Squash Casserole

I was born and raised in the south, yet I didn't taste squash casserole until I was 23 years old. WHAT? This is true, I promise. I decided to attempt it on my own a couple of weeks ago and who did I turn to? Paula Deen, of course. It was easy and delicious!

6 c raw squash
1 c water
4 T butter
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 c sour cream
1 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 t salt
1 t pepper
1 t house seasoning
1 c crushed Ritz crackers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add squash and water to a large pot and allow to stew for around 10 minutes. Drain squash in a colander. In a medium skillet, saute the onions in butter for 5 minutes. Remove onions from skillet and, in a large bowl, combine squash, onions, sour cream, salt, pepper, seasoning and cheese.

Pour mixture into a greased dish and top with Ritz crackers. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
