My husband and I were craving acorn squash, because of the season, so we bought one, but then didn't know what to do with it. We're vegetarian and wanted to make it a main course, so I pulled a recipe off of cdkitchen.com for sausage stuffed acorn squash, then modified it. It was really good! And I made a healthy version. I am usually a struct recipe follower, but this one is so easy, I didn't even measure stuff...that's unusual for me...and it came out great!
Essentially, this is what I did:
Cut the acorn squash in half and place, cut side down in a baking dish with a solid layer off water in it. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, I browned some Gimmie Lean brand vegetarian sausage in a skillet with a wee bit of oil, making the sausage come of kind of clumpy by using a big spoon to stir it. Then, I pulled the squash out, poured out the leftover water, and filled the squash halves with about a Tbsp, or so, of margarine and a scoop of brown sugar, then the sausage. I put them back in the oven until the sqaush was soft and all the margarine was melted. It was delicious!!!
