Pioneer Press- North Shore Suburban Newspaper

Today I had an interview and photo shoot with the Pioneer Press. The Pioneer Press is the newspaper for the North Shore suburbs of Chicago. I featured a dish called Summer Squash Casserole. The article will be availabe in print and online on Thursday May, 27th.
Here is the recipe for the dish! It is delicious, easy, and a great compliment to any summer BBQ entree.

Summer Squash
8 summer squash, washed and cut into 1/2 inch rounds
3 cups of tomato sauce
3 onions, sliced
Fresh grated parmesan cheese
2 T. sugar
1/4 c. olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium saucepan, saute onions in oil until translucent. Set aside.
Grease a 9" x 13" baking dish.
Lay squash in baking dish. Sprinkle onions on top of squash.
Pour tomato sauce on top of onions. Sprinkle with 2 Tablespoons of sugar.
Top off with parmesan cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Serve and enjoy!


  1. What a wonderful way to honor your mom. I love it! My mom also died very young. My kids never met her, so I tell them about her life as we cook from her recipe box.

    I'd love to quote you in my book. Please send me an email when you get a minute. I can see you're busy!
