This is a pretty "one dish" meal where the dish is edible. Or serve surrounded by your favorite pasta noddles.

This recipe turned out to be just okay, not near as good as I had thought it would be. The flavors just did not blend to my taste's liking. Though I did eat my whole meal, I will not repeat this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut each squash in half lengthwise, remove seeds and cut a thin slice off the bottom so they will"sit" nicely when served.
  2. Spread butter over entire cavity of each half and place cut side down on a cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
  4. While the squash is baking, combine all the remaining ingredients except the avacado and almonds.
  5. Mix well.
  6. When squash is finished, remove from oven, turn upright and fill with equal amounts of filling.
  7. Top each half with 2 slices of avacado and sprinkle with almonds.
