  • 6 medium yellow squash
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup tomato, chopped and seeded
  • ½ cup green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 3 slices turkey bacon, crumbled

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In large pot, cover whole squash with water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for several minutes. Drain and cool. Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds, leaving a firm shell.

In medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except butter. Place squash halves in a 9×13 baking pan and spoon filling into the centers. Dot with butter. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until lightly browning on top.
