Sausage-Stuffed Squash

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"In Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Mary Magner tucks a flavorful sausage mixture into colorful acorn squash halves. Cooking the squash in the microwave means this entree is done in minutes. I like to use maple-flavored bulk pork sausage, Mary notes."

Disappointing. The squash and meat weren't especially harmonious. In fact, I think everyone scooped the meat back out and ate it and the squash separately. In addition, the sour cream didn't par...

Yummy! I love squash and my husband dislikes all vegetables and he actually loved this! It was fast and easy. I used low fat sour cream and it tasted just fine! Next time I will add some bell ...
