Ingredients:  
4 to 5 large yellow squash
1 onion, finely chopped
1 bell pepper, finely chopped
1 to 2 stick celery, finely chopped
1 lb. Italian sausage, taken out of skin and browned
2 c. bread crumbs or crushed crackers, divided in half
2 c. shredded Colby Jack cheese (or a mixture of your favorite cheeses), divided in half
salt
pepper
garlic powder to taste
1 to 2 eggs, beaten

Directions:
Directions:
Wrap each squash in paper towel and place in microwave. Cook until tender to touch. Let cool slightly, just until you can touch them. Slice lengthwise and scoop out the inside, seeds and all, into bowl. (Keep the skin in tack because you are going to stuff them just like a stuffed bake potato.) Mix all the ingredients listed above with the exception of 1 cup bread crumbs. Stuff skins of squash and place them in a long baking dish. Cook until golden brown and stuffing is set. As soon as they are done, cover with remaining bread crumbs and another cup of cheese. Place under broiler until cheese is melted and top is almost crusted. This can be an entire meal with salad and rolls, or a side dish.

Personal Notes:
I have also used crab meat, chicken, hamburger, and shrimp instead of Italian sausage. It works just as well. These are good reheated for another meal.
