So yummy, and colorful!! I too have used chicken sausage instead at times. We always add some Cayenne for an extra kick. We recently tried the White Bean stuffed acorn squash from Eating Well, similar, very yummy and different nutrients to change it up!
Southwestern Stuffed Acorn Squash
From EatingWell: September/October 2007
Cumin and chili powder season a filling of turkey sausage, tomatoes, black beans and Swiss cheese for creamy acorn squash. Serve this stuffed squash with warmed corn tortillas for wrapping up bites of all the tasty ingredients.

We regularly eat this meal in the fall. I often substitute low-sodium, canned, diced tomatoes (partly drained) for fresh to cut down on the prep time. I also often add various medium to hot peppers, depending on what's available at the farmer's market. And a little cheddar works fine in place of swiss. This recipe really lends itself to using whatever is on hand!
I have made this recipe at least once a month (in the fall/winter) for the past 3 years. I always buy 2 delicato squash and use 1/2 lb of turkey or pork sausage. LOVE IT! My hubby "hates" squash, but requests this regularly.
This was really good. I didn't have any sausage so I cooked up some bulgur wheat with chicken stock and used that in the stuffing. This will definitely be added to the fall repertoire!
