1/6 Photos of Italian Stuffed Acorn Squash-Crock Pot
4 hrs 15 mins
Delicious squash combined with nutty rice and tangy goat cheese is a healthy delight, providing a hefty dose of fiber, vitamins A and C, and a little calcium. Serve whole or cut into wedges. This is from Delicious Living magazine, which I get from my health food store. Any good winter squash can be used.
