Awesome Recipe

This is probably the best go-to recipe for fall cooking. Simple to put together, for the most part pretty nutritious and incredible tasty. I've made this for 5 or 6 different groups of people and they all look at me like they've discovered some treasure after the first bite. And it's a recipe that gives you some options, if you like to ad lib here and there.

Easy to Make, Simple Prep
It's a keeper!

This was a hit for my husband and me. I had two acorn squashes on the counter and no recipe. This was so easy to make and I had all of the ingredients on hand, except for the turkey sausage. I couldn't find turkey sausage at our local store, so instead I used that pre-cooked smoked turkey sausage "links". This added a nice flavor to the dish. My husband wanted seconds!!! And I had the fourth - for two days of lunch. This recipe is filling and awesome!

easy, delicious, fiber full, affordable
Great Fall Dinner

My husband loves this meal! Its one of his favorites! Its such a great way to cook the squash! Its so easy and the presentation is great!

Great way to eat any winter squash

Great recipe. I didn't have any fresh tomatos on hand, so i used 1 cup of stewed tomatos. It was great!! Didn't use the hot sauce, but thinking next time maybe some jalepenos.

easy, basically ready in an hour
This was a tasty dish and will use it again

I liked the suffing alot it tasted amazing, I also like acorn squash but didnt like them together. It just didnt taste like a good combination to me. However I did have leftover and used it over rice it was awesome so I encourage using this stuffing in other ways. Im gonna try this over fish.

easy to make
