  1. I can say that the filling is very good even though there is no cheese in it. I used fat-free sour cream. It's great mixed with the sausages (I used spicy), mushrooms and onion. The only thing I didn't like is the acorn squash. It was my first time tasting it and I won't buy it. I think it's too sweet for my taste. Thanks Lainey :) Made for Photo tag. I would do the filling to use with spaghetti squash. It would be delish :D
  2. Great concept! I ended up using ground turkey, sweet onions, and red bell peppers with low fat sour cream (that's all I had on hand) and it came out fantastic. Thanks for such a wonderful idea!
  3. This was really good. We will make this again. I made the recipe as written but added a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese on top.
  4. I only used one squash because there was only two of us for dinner tonight. We thought it could use a little seasoning, which could be solved by using a spicier sausage. We just added a little garlic salt, onion salt and pepper. That did the trick! We both enjoyed it.
  5. Two of us were eating - one of us does not like squash, both of us thought this was great.<br/>I followed the recipe as written, but halved it since there was only one lonely squash in the bowl.<br/>The recipe was so easy to prepare, I'm sure I will be making it again.<br/>Thank you for this!
