Meatless Monday + Passover Plates: Squash Casserole

When Passover and Meatless Monday collide the results are delicious. Check out the kosher for Passover version of my mom's squash casserole.

A few weeks ago a friend of mine and Josh's made us a beyond yummy squash pie. When I raved about it to my mom she told me that she too had a similar recipe. I was so excited! We decided to make it together for Passover. All we had to do was trade out the breadcrumbs for matzah meal. The whole thing was really easy to make and tasted great. I love how versatile meatless meals can be.

3 lbs of yellow summer squash
1 stick of margarine
1/2 cup of chopped onions
2 eggs
1 cup of matzah meal
1 tablespoon of sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Slice and boil the summer squash until soft but firm.

Drain squash and mash it well.

Melt 1 stick of margarine.
Add half of the melted margarine, chopped onions, sugar, and egg to the squash
Season with salt and pepper to taste

Add in 1 cup of matzah meal (or bread crumbs if not for Passover) and mix well.
Add more matzah meal if necessary for proper consistency.

Put the entire mixture into a casserole dish for baking
Cover with the other half of the melted margarine and more matzah meal.
Bake for 1 hour at 375 degrees

Serve and enjoy.

How did you go meatless over Passover?
