Ingredients

  • 2 pounds yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 pound zucchini, sliced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (14.5-oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups chopped cooked chicken

Preparation

1. Place first 3 ingredients in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, folding back a small edge to allow steam to escape. Microwave at HIGH 8 minutes or until squash is tender; drain. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

2. Drain tomatoes well, pressing between paper towels. Stir together tomatoes, chicken, and next 4 ingredients. Layer one-third each soup mixture, squash mixture, breadcrumbs, and Cheddar cheese in a lightly greased 6-qt. slow cooker. Repeat layers twice. Top with Parmesan cheese.

3. Cover and cook on HIGH 4 hours or until bubbly and edges are golden. Uncover and cook on HIGH 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
