Crowd Pleasing Squash Casserole

Thanksgiving 2014, I decided to make 3 casserole dishes.  
Green Bean, Broccoli Rice and Squash. 
I have never made squash casserole. It is one of my favorites any time I eat somewhere with a home style flair.  
There are so many different ways to make squash casserole.  
Here is the recipe I decided to test out - Southern Living Squash Casserole
I adapted it to feed a large crowd.  This recipe also called for basil. I chose to leave it out.
Cooked Yellow Squash & Onions
