Description

These stuffed acorn squash with sausage and mushrooms will have you dreaming of fall. I also provide a quick tip on how to easily cut your squash!

Ingredients

  • 2  Acorn Squash
  • 4 Tablespoons Avocado Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • 1 pound Ground Sausage
  • 8 ounces, weight Baby Bella Mushrooms, Quartered
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • ¼ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

Pierce skin of each acorn squash and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Remove from microwave and let cool. Once cool, slice squash in half, cutting between the grooves in the squash. Scrape out seeds and discard.

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Brush each squash half with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Place squash flesh side down on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 30 minutes.

While squash are roasting, cook sausage in a skillet until cooked through. Add quartered mushrooms and dried thyme. Sauté until mushrooms are softened, but not mushy.

Remove squash from the oven and carefully flip them flesh side up. Spoon the sausage and mushroom mixture on top of each squash half and the sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place the squash back in the oven for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted.
