Had some of the filling left over and plan on using it tomorrow morning in my eggs as one of the other reviewers suggested.

I make this frequently. It's so easy to make, and absolutely delicious. I've made it for several people and everyone loves it! Sometimes I just use one squash, then use the leftover stuffing the next morning in eggs. Yummy!!!
This recipe is delicious as is. Just follow the recipe and make no changes. I look forward to fall to make this dish.
I really liked this dish - I used ground beef instead of turkey sausage and added corn. However, I made everything the day before, then tried to reheat it in the oven. It took FOREVER even after turning the heat up and it was still cold at the bottom. So I wouldn't recommend reheating it altogether in this way. I ended up smearing the squash on corn tortillas and spooning the meat mixture on top to make tacos. It was amazing.
This is a delicious recipe! My entire family enjoyed it! I made it with plain ground turkey and a dash of liquid smoke and I think it would be great with any kind of ground meat or sausage you have on hand. Next time I will try it with ground beef. I also substituted canned diced tomatoes and cheddar cheese. I'm not a huge squash fan but this recipe will have me looking forward to squash season from now on! YUM!
