Squash Casserole

I love squash casserole but have never found the perfect recipe.  I came across this recipe and it was yummy and easy!  Go check out Lauren's Blog for a delicious recipe for meatloaf muffins that she served with the casserole. 

Squash Casserole
*serves 4-6*

3 small or 2 large yellow squash
appr 3/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic salt(not as strong as garlic powder)
heaping cup of shredded cheese (I used Sargento 4 State Cheddar and HIGHLY recommend it!!) OR you can just grab a big handful like I did. ;)
salt & pepper to taste
appr 3/4 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
1/2 stick butter, melted

Cut up your squash and throw in pot full of water. Boil for 4-5 minutes until just tender. Drain well and dump in bowl.
Add in sour cream, onion powder, and garlic salt. You can use chopped onion if you like them. You can even saute them, and season with the garlic salt and some salt & pepper, then add to the mixture.
Add in cheese and mix until well combined. Taste for seasonings and adjust as needed. I also added a little bit of plain sharp cheddar, along with the 4 State Cheddar.
*Add a splash of milk if you want to thin it out just a tad. It'll add more creaminess to it, as well.*
Pour into a greased pan and top with crushed crackers.
Pour melted butter over the top and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
