This recipe was adapted from a 1970's issue of Southern Living. The sausage and squash and parmesan cheese blend together to create a wonderful flavor. I use non-fat sour cream and a lowfat sausage to cut some calories. I usually serve this with a side dish of pasta, truly a good fall dinner and a family favorite.

This is the recipe I've been using for years. I love the richness that the sour cream & parmesan add. I reduce the overall cooking time by cooking the squash in the microwave; then finishing it off after stuffing in the oven.
