This was very good. A bit labor intensive, but fun for a cool winter day when I wasn't planning to go anywhere, anyways! I made it as recommended but took others' advice and added some herbs and spices. It was very tasty, and I can't remember the last time I wanted to gorge myself on squash! One thing I'm wondering is why it's necessary to put the squash mix back into the empty shell to re-bake it, rather than putting it into a casserole dish or something. It seems like the latter would be less messy, as I had a hard time scooping the leftover squash mixture back out of the shell. Did make for a nice presentation, though!

As with others, my squash didn't cook within one hour. I put it in the microwave for another 30 minutes. This was the first time I've prepared Turban Squash and found it delightful. I added a little fresh rosemary from my garden, as well as thyme. YUMMY! It's VERY pretty to set on the table.

Thanks Sue. I have been looking for something to do with winter squash. This was fantastic! I didn't have the turban so I used a buttercup squash and I used maple flavored sausage. The turban must have a thicker rind because it fell apart and I just mixed it in a bowl and put it in a small cassarole. I did everything else the same. Thank you again I definetly will make this again. Bonnie

I made this a few weeks ago, because I had bought a turban around Halloween - they are so beautiful. It was so delicious, and easy, that I decided to bring it to Thanksgiving. A really big hit! Even my daughter, who hates vegetables, loves it. Huzzah!

This is the best squash recipe that I have ever had. My wife and I are on a diet and have been eating quite a bit of squash lately. I have been little impressed with the other squash recipes that we have had. This one was great. It didn't have that typical squash flavor to it.

This is my two year old sons favorite dish! He has about three helpings every time we make it. We like to add in fresh sage, sometimes even rosemary. We have also modified the "breading" using leftover stuffing (it had celery and turkey in the stuffing). After trying this dish, we've made it about 5 times this winter. I think it might also freeze well, though we never have enough left over to freeze.

This was sooo good! I didn't even buy this squash for cooking, just Halloween decoration, but i decided to try to do something with it. This recipe had to be tampered with a little bit (I added a lot of spices and jasmine rice) and it was excellent!

Yeah, my partner and I didn't get what's all the fuzz about. Thank god I didn't use a lot of kitchenware otherwise I'd be angry to stay and clean a mess after a mediocre recipe. It was ok, nicely presented, but that's all. We used regular pork sausage, but we had to add some nice hungarian hot paprika to perk it up. I would suggest a hungarian "red" sausage instead, with paprika and garlic.

Everyone was pleasantly surprised. My family doesn't really care for squash but they loved this tasty version.
