Makes 6 to 8 servings
Ingredients
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 5 cups (¼-inch-thick) sliced yellow squash (about 1½ pounds)
  • 5 cups (¼-inch-thick) sliced zucchini (about 1½ pounds)
  • 1½ cups chopped yellow onion
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large Dutch oven, bring broth, squash, zucchini, and onion to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer until squash is tender, about 7 minutes. Drain well.
