Cheesy Summer Squash Bake

OK, here is the other recipe for the side dish from yesterday's post.  I got the inspiration through a fellow food blogger, Kalyn Denny of and of course I changed a few things to her adapted recipe to suit my taste.  It is so easy and delicious, even my little monsters loved them!  Look at all that cheese and those herbs!  Yum!!!!

The Recipe:

Cheesy Summer Squash Bake

2 medium yellow squash, sliced in half moons
2 medium zucchini, sliced in half moons
2 tablespoons chopped sweet onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup grated Italian blend cheese (Mozzarella, Provolone, Romano
and Asiago)
3/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

Slice squashes and chop the sweet onion.  Place squash and onion in a medium sized bowl and combine with the basil, thyme, garlic powder, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup of Italian blend cheese and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.  Stir mixture together until everything is well combined.  

Spray a baking dish with cooking spray and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, return to oven and bake for 15 minutes longer or until lightly golden on top.

Happy Eating!
