    * 1 (2-ounce) piece Parmesan, coarsely chopped

    * 6 tablespoons olive oil
    * 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
    * Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Directions

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, then turn squash over and cook for another 30 minutes or until soft.
Meanwhile, combine the next 7 ingredients in a food processor. Pulse just until the tomatoes are coarsely chopped (do not puree).
while squash is still hot (be careful) scrape out flesh into a large bowl
Toss the squash with the tomato mixture and fresh mozzarella in a large bowl. Serve immediately.
