Bacon & Velveeta Veggie Squash Casserole

Kerry and Nancy gave us some squash so I got to experiment with it again tonight. I was a little worried that I was ruining the whole meal because I just wasn't sure how things would taste together. To my surprise it was actually very, very good.  I wasn't sure the corn and beans would work in it but they worked great. They just added more to the dish so it went farther, and it tasted great! The kids loved it too. Oh and don't be deceived (like I normally am) by the long list of ingredients. It's actually pretty easy to make. I love squash season!!!
