    Don't waste the seeds! Clean and toss with oil and salt then roast them

    Make into a main course, and service with steamed broccoli, green beans, sauteed kale/greens, or a salad.

    Make it as a main dish! Cook the squash (acorn or butternut) until crisp/tender. Allow to cool a bit. In meantime, saute 1/2 onion chopped & 1 large garlic clove chopped for a few minutes. Add 1/4 to 1/2 lb good quality bulk sausage meat. Break up and cook until sausage is cooked through. Put the sausage mixture in a bowl, add 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 2 Tbsp maple syrup (or 1 Tbsp brown sugar & 1 Tbsp honey), salt & pepper to taste. Scrape out squash and add to bowl, leaving about 1/4" on skins to help hold their shape. Mix everything together (an old fashioned potato masher works well), then fill the squash shells with the mix. Top with a little more cheese and cook for another 5 minutes in microwave (or preferably in a pre-heated convection oven @ 350 for 10 minutes or regular oven @ 375 for 15 minutes. YUMMY!
