Two of our favorite things- squash casserole and cornbread dressing. This dish is some kind of good. When we first came up with this recipe we weren’t too sure about adding the cheese, but we did and it was so fine. It goes great with just about any meat. This dish can be made ahead of time and pulled out of the fridge and popped in the oven.
