  • In another mixing bowl, make topping by mixing together breadcrumbs, Ritz crackers, cheddar cheese, butter.
  • Sprinkle this topping on top of the squash mixture.
  • Cover and cook on Low heat for 2-3 hours or until squash is tender.
  • Optional step: Remove lid and broil in oven for 5 minutes or until topping is crispy and golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and garnish with roughly chopped fresh parsley if you like. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated in the microwave but the topping won't be as crispy any more.
