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.

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!
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 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.
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.
