Stuffed Yellow Squash

6 medium small yellow (crook necked) squash
½ cup Italian bread crumbs
1 Tablespoon grated onion
½ teaspoon chili powder (or sweet smoky paprika for a milder dish)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup grated parmesan (or other hard cheese such as Asiago)
1 egg

Wash and halve squash.  Arrange cut side up in a 9 x 13” baking dish.  Add ½” water to pan and cover with foil.  Bake at 350* for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool until you can handle the squash.

Scoop out squash centers into a medium mixing bowl and return squash to baking dish.  Add all other ingredients to the bowl and mix well.  Place a scoop of the mixture in the cavity of each squash.  Return to oven and bake uncovered for another 20 minutes.  Serve warm.
