    Wanted a savory squash recipe. Tweaked an existing one from Betty Crocker to make a side dish; now I've got a keeper that's a meal!

      Very Good for a savory dish. I substituted Turkey Bacon, but then needed to add some Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get the onions/apples/garlic to saute properly. I didn't use the optional topping, but next time would add a slice of swiss on top of each stuffed squash to give it a little extra cheesy goodness. I'll make this again!
