Zucchini, Squash & Corn Casserole

This recipe makes a great side dish to your summer cookouts or for those family dinners with the in-laws. We served our casserole with grilled barbecue-glazed chicken. The cheesy flavor will help those non-vegetable eaters enjoy this recipe too. Per serving, this recipe is less than 300 calories, around 15g of carbohydrates, and close to 11g of protein. This casserole does reheat well if you end up with leftovers. Also, I encourage you to experiment with other vegetables in this casserole and let us know what you used!
