Stuffed Zucchini and Yellow Squash

Have a hearty meal that's packed with flavor.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray, set aside. In a medium pot, bring 2 cups water to a boil.
  2. Scrub squash and slice in half lengthwise. Remove seeds, leaving shells 1/3-1/2-inch thick.
  3. Place squash in a steaming basket, place inside pot, and lower heat to a simmer. Cover pot and steam squash until tender, about 8-12 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium skillet. Reserve 1 tablespoon. Sauté onions and mushrooms with remaining butter until soft.
  5. Stir in ham, parsley and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper, to taste.
  6. Drain squash and stuff with vegetable mixture. Place in prepared baking dish.
  7. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and parmesan. Sprinkle mixture evenly covering squash. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon butter over the top. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
