DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut the acorn squash in half length wise (a big knife works best -- be careful!), and scoop out seeds.
  • Place squash cut side down in a baking dish, add a small amount of water (about 1/4 cup), cover with tin foil and place in oven. Cook 30 - 40 minutes, or until very tender when pierced with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, wash, de-stem and chop chard & finely chop or press garlic.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in large pan - add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add chard and saute until reduced in size and wilted, about 5-7 minutes.
  • When the squash is tender, remove from the oven and fill each cavity with sauteed chard. Mix in shredded gruyere with chard.
  • Place filled squash back in oven for a few minutes, just enough to melt the cheese.
