    Sisty Gin's Note:

    I usually see sweet recipes for acorn squash. I like this one because it uses the squash as a main dish. This is warm and filling, perfect for an autumn day. This recipe came from Colorado Collage.

      This recipe was delicious. I followed the recipe to the tee except I did use Jimmie Dean Italian sausage for the stuffing. Was a great fall recipe and I will make this again. Thanks Sisty Gin

      This recipe sounded wonderful but since our family is allergic to several ingredients, I had some tweaking to do! The mushrooms and bell peppers had to go, and the turkey sausage became a vegetarian Italian sausage (trade name "Tofurky"). I steamed the squash halves and while that was happening, I sauted the onion and garlic, added the bread (which turned out to be half a bagel, cubed small!) and then added the diced Tofurky Italian "sausage" and freshly ground black pepper. When the squash was done, I filled it with the tofurky/onion mixture and topped it with the parmasean cheese. We loved it and talked about having it again. Thank you Sisty Gin for a great dinner idea!
