Dana's Squash and Zucchini Casserole

Sorry for the long interval between posts.  Dana and I have been very busy.  Plus, our camera was broken.  Therefore, I was unable to take photos for the blog.  However, we discovered that we had an old point and shoot camera.  It takes mediocre shots, so please forgive the photos.  We were thinking of dishes that we could serve during the holidays.  This casserole is the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving.
