I could not find turkey sausage so I used chicken sausage. Very easy to make and delicious! I will make it again.


Super easy and really tasty. Nice treat for lunch.


Wow it was great. And a great way to get your daily veggies. When I was prepping it the meal did not look that filling but half a squash later I was full. A tasty treat indeed. And if you have left over filling, it work great as a filler for a tortilla for the next day. Will make again!!


Made as directed with a few subs: used only 2 squash, used veggie meat and a mix of homemade canned heirlooms chopped and store-bought pico de gallo. Also, a mixed low fat mexican cheese blend. No hot sauce due to 4 yr old but adults added salsa to theirs. Was delish and my 4 yr old gobbled it up.


I made this for my parents and they thought it was great. I will definately make this again. It was a great mixture of flavors.
