DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut squash in half lengthwise.
  • Drop halves in boiling water and boil for 7 minutes.
  • Remove from water.
  • Allow to rest until cool enough to handle.
  • With a spoon, scrape the middle of the squash out, leaving a shell about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Set aside the shells.
  • Finely chop scooped out middles.
  • Heat a skillet and spray with cooking spray.
  • Saute chopped squash, onion, basil and garlic until onion is soft.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Whisk milk and flour together.
  • Slowly add small amounts of milk to the veggies while stirring.
  • Bring mixture just to a boil.
  • Add cheese and 1/2 cup bread crumbs, stirring the whole time.
  • Mixture should be semi thick, almost crumbly.
  • If it is too thick or too thin, add milk or bread crumbs accordingly.
  • Re-season if needed.
  • Stuff the shells with this mixture, sprinkle with remaining bread crumbs and dot with butter.
  • Bake in oven for 10-20 minutes or until bread crumbs are golden brown.
