To give this a little more spice but make it Gluten Free, try adding spicy corn chips instead of croutons.

This was good but a little on the bland side. Next time I will add some other seasonings. After cooking for 1-1/2 hours I checked and the squash were beginning to get a little soggy. I layed a clean dish towel over the crock and replace the lid for the remainder of the cooking time. The squash were nice and tender without being watery.
