Author Notes: An old family recipe that transforms yellow summer squash into tender, creamy yet light goodness! - earthlyepicureanearthlyepicurean

Food52 Review: This is the ultimate warm-weather comfort food: an uncomplicated dish one can imagine has been prepared for several generations, because everyone loves it and couldn’t imagine a summer family gathering without it. It's remarkably light and tasty. We topped it with fresh whole-grain bread crumbs, a nice touch which I recommend. All four taste testers enjoyed this, unanimously recommending it for EP honors - AntoniaJamesThe Editors

  • 4 yellow summer squash

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

This looks like a lighter version of my family's squash casserole, which also calls for cheddar cheese and crushed Ritz crackers. Can't wait to try!
