Everyone will enjoy this. Especially cheese lovers. I use a full cup of cheddar, 1/2 cup swiss and provolone or mozzarella for the rest. Any combination will do. I cobbled this recipe together from several that I enjoyed.

I read about this on a forum for ways to have "main dish squash recipes." This had a wonderful French/Italian flavor. I used reg mozz and a mozz blend (provolone, parmesan, etc) and loved the taste and creaminess of it. I cooked my onions and squash until some of it browned, since I prefer it that way. When I read "deep dish" pan I used a deep cake tin, which I think the high sides of the pan kept it from rising as much as the photo. I will use a reg. Pyrex next time. Thanks Kathy, for posting!

Made for dinner, but accidentally used 1/2 tsp Herbes de Provence instead of tarragon! So I put the tarragon in anyways. Don't know if the added spice changed the flavor. It was somewhat licoricy. I used 1 C cheddar and 1 C mozzarella, and 1 T margarine. I'll have to try again w/out the added spice! Didn't use the bell pepper, but would try it next time.
