I stuffed 2 larger acorn squash for main dishes (in the end neither of us could eat more then 1/2 of one :). Made exactly as written, but added more cranberries and some walnuts (love nuts!) In the end I found it just a bit bland for me.
Makes a very tasty vegetarian lunch. Recipe calls for wild rice mix, used a brown and wild rice mix. Made as written and got 6 good size servings. Loved the mix of wild rice, pecans, and cranberries. Will next time increase the cranberries by 1 to 2 tablespoons. The acorn squash makes a nice light flavor holder for this tasty fill. Thanks so much for the post.
