Lovely nutty flavor and a good appearence. If you have any stuffing left over put it in a green pepper and cook it along with the squash, it's quite good cold too

Great appearence, but lack of flavor. There needs to be more herbs or something to liven it up a bit. I'll try again sometime with a new twist.

This is delicious! The quinoa gives it a wonderful, nutty taste that goes well with the squash. Any kind of squash would be good, especially if you're counting carbs.
