Ingredients

  • 8 cups sliced yellow squash (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 6 ounces hot turkey Italian sausage (about 2 links)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 (1-ounce) slices day-old white bread
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) diced provolone cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine squash and water in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; vent. Microwave at HIGH 6 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
  3. Remove casing from sausage. Cook sausage, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain.
  4. Place the bread in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs form to measure 1 cup. Combine the squash, sausage mixture, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, sour cream, cheese, salt, pepper, and soup. Spoon squash mixture in a 2-quart casserole coated with cooking spray.
  5. Top with remaining 1/2 cup breadcrumbs. Spray breadcrumbs with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
