DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut squash in half and remove seeds and fibers.
  • I also cut a very thin slice from the other side of the squash so it won't"wobble" while it's baking.
  • Put 1/2 tsp butter, Salt and Pepper in each squash cavity.
  • Place squash halves in an ungreased baking pan (I use a CorningWare casserole with a lid).
  • Fry bacon until crisp, drain and crumble.
  • Reserve bacon drippings.
  • Saute onions, peppers and celery in drippings until tender.
  • Stir in tomato sauce and oregano.
  • Simmer 3- 4 minutes.
  • Spoon tomato sauce mixture into hollow of each squash.
  • Top with bacon.
  • Pour water into dish to 1/4 inch depth.
  • Cover baking dish.
  • You can use foil if you don't have a cover for the dish.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until squash is tender.
