What to do with yellow squash?

No one likes to just eat it in my house and my mom got me 2 fresh yellow squash from my step dads brothers garden. Id love to use it up but would like to put it in something. Anyone have any ideas?

You can use instead of the green for zucchini bread, or mix it into mac in cheese (the yellow color helps hide it in the cheese), add it in an omelet (again it is hidden easily if grated). I prefer the yellow because it is easier to hide in a lot of food!

I'm the only one in my house who eats squash, so I usually hide it in spaghetti sauce, or mac-n-cheese like another poster said.

Sometimes I'll just roast it and eat it by myself. LOL!

I love yellow squash and I eat it a lot but for someone that is not so fond I would suggest grating it into dishes or making it into a bread.

Slice it into rounds, dredge it in eggs and salt and peppered bread crumbs and fry it up in a little bit of olive oil. We had it last night and it is so tasty.
