Stuffed Yellow Summer Squash (Yellow Submarines)

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at Select the yellow squash for its boat shape, the longer and straighter the better. This fun recipe was inspired by the Beatles, 1966, "Yellow Submarine". Make this recipe and you too can live in a yellow submarine!

2-3 medium - large yellow summer squash
1 small red onion, or shallots
1/2 small yellow bell pepper
1 small fresh tomato, or several baby tomatoes
1/4 cup or so of smoked salmon, or tuna, or sardines as desired
snipped fresh herbs or sprinkles of dried herbs
grated Cheddar or Cotswald for topping

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the insides to make a boat shape, which will be your submarines. Coarsely chop the zucchini insides, the onion, bell pepper and tomato. If using the smoked fish, cut it into small chunks and place in the bottom of each submarine. Now load your submarines with the vegetable mixture. Sprinkle with herbs as desired. Spread a bit of olive oil over bottom of a baking dish and set the boats in it. Bake 20 minutes and then sprinkle with the cheese. Bake another 5 minutes or so to melt the cheese a bit. Serve!
