Turkey Sausage-Stuffed Acorn Squash
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 50 min.
Was better than I imagined! So good and satisfying. I loved having something low in calories but that just hit the spot. I can’t wait to eat left overs tomorrow.
Made as directed and it was good. Not a family favorite. I gave it a four star on account of its flavor for being low calorie and tasty. It's a lot of food and if the whole family isn't dieting it's a lot of leftovers.

Hubby loved it. Kids not so much but only because they were thrown off by serving in the squash bowl.
can this be frozen to serve another day?
My whole family (even the kids) really enjoyed this! I didn't change a thing.
This tasted good, but the kids didn't touch it ("ewww, stuffed squash!"). Left out the caraway, thyme, salt, pepper, and vinegar. Subbed in 1 pint diced canned tomatoes, 4oz can of mushrooms, 1/2 pound Italian sausage, shredded kale, and shredded mozzarella. Made the filling and baked the squash halves before church, combined and cooked after church; this worked out nicely.
I used 1/2 spicy hot sausage and 1/2 hamburger , Monterrey jack cheese and added some canned Bertolli marinara sauce over the filling. I used less mushrooms. Will make again for myself (family not impressed). Very versatile!
A little bit of extra prep time with this recipe, but it is worth it. Absolutely delicious.
This is the most incredible recipe. We try new recipes nearly every week and at this point it is very difficult to make my top 10 list; however; this recipe made it! I have never found another recipe with such an intriguing yet well thought out combination of herbs. You have never had another dish that tastes like this one. It is amazing! Also, we followed the recipe exactly as written. Note: you really do need to add the red wine vinegar. Melissa Birdsong, you are an amazing cook to develop such a unique recipe.
