About the recipe
This delicious herbed squash casserole boasts a vegetable medley, cheese, and herb stuffing for the ultimate casserole experience.
To save time, grate the vegetables in a food processor. A dash of hot sauce on the vegetables adds a little extra zip.
We used Pepperidge Farm Herbed Seasoned Stuffing for the herbed stuffing mix in this recipe.

4 tablespoons ( 1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2 cups herb stuffing mix
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese, divided
2 cups grated zucchini
2 cups grated yellow squash
1 cup grated carrots
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup sour cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In 2-quart microwave-safe baking dish, melt the butter. Stir in the stuffing mix and 1/3 cup of the grated cheese. Reserve 1/2 cup of the stuffing mixture for the topping.
In a mixing bowl, combine the zucchini, yellow squash, carrots and onion. Stir in the sour cream and remaining cheese. Pour into the baking dish over the stuffing mixture; spread evenly. Sprinkle with the reserved stuffing mixture and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until bubbly and lightly browned.
