      Made a few modifications after reading the other reviews but overall really liked the recipe! To increase the flavor of the filling I added chopped onion, garlic, and spices and also added some plain yogurt to address the dryness comments. To serve as a main, I added 1/2 c. of cooked brown rice and then the squash was overlowing with filling but it still looked nice. Will be making this again!

      There are plenty of recipes for squash that use maple syrup, cinnamon and butter, so it's nice to see a savory recipe like this. I was able to get the stuffing into one squash. I microwaved my squash for 10 minutes and seasoned each half with salt, pepper, nutmeg and italian seasoning. To the stuffing mixture, I microplaned one clove of garlic into it and added a few sprigs of fresh thyme. Baked this for 30 mins at 300F and my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed with Cod With Onions and Chives (Kabeljau Mit Schnittlauch Zwiebeln). This is a very filling side dish that could easily be the entree. Thank you, Barb, for sharing this delicious recipe!

      I think this recipe is a good start for us. I've never had acorn squash before so I didn't know what to expect. Now I know. Next time I'll kick up the flavor a little bit as I found this to be very bland. I think I'll season the actual squash better as well as add some garlic and onion to the spinach mixture. All in all it was still good and everyone is game for another try.
