DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut off tops of squash and use a melon baller or sharp teaspoon to scoop out the middle and reserve.
  • Boil the squash covered in 1 inch of water for 2 minutes.
  • Line the bottom of a small casserole dish with the squash bottoms and set aside the tops.
  • Melt the butter in a pan and saute the onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Add the corn and continue cooking until soft. Add salt, pepper, paprika and sugar.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, breadcrumbs, eggs, oregano and basil.
  • Add the sauteed vegetables to the breadcrumb mixture. Mix gently and then spoon it over the tops of the squash (they will be overflowing).
  • Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the top and replace the squash tops.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
