This vegetarian main dish takes a bit of time and energy so we usually fix it for special occasions or company. Served with a salad and rolls, it is a beautiful gourmet meal.

This was very good. I added cooked mild turkey sausage. IMPORTANT: must drain squash and mushrooms very well after sautéing.

I didn't think this took too much time to make at all. It was a wonderful new way to make summer squash. I made this as written, but used cheddar cheese instead of monterey jack. It's a great combination of veggies. It was delicious. Thanx!

We loved it and it is a wonderful way to get rid of the "always too much squash in the garden". I am going to add some spicy sausage to it the next time.
