when i make this -- which i will -- i'll cut the squash in half lengthwise and roast for about 15-20 min. at 350 F instead of boiling. i'll also use smoked paprika, which will be mixed into the filling.

I'm not normally a squash lover, but these were delicious! Loved the filling so much, bacon makes everything better! I couldn't find a properly yellow summer squash in any supermarket near me, so mine were kind of green/yellow, but they still tasted fantastic!
