Add my husband to the bunch who hate squash but liked this. I guess the appeal for them must be that the squash is kind of "diluted" or tamed by the other vegetables. Whatever the reason we both enjoyed this a lot. No changes other than to add a little minced garlic to the sauteed vegetables and it was fine as is. Sometimes simple flavors are nice in their own right without a lot of additional herbs and spices. Read More

Oh my oh WOW and HOLY COW! Made this last night and my BF ate an ENTIRE SQUASH!!! He loved it so much he didn't hardly touch the main dish which was one of his faves. Omitted the butter started with 4 slices thichk cut bacon (cut into pieces) and sauteed veggies in the grease used a little less onion and a little more mushrooms and added a bit more salt. As another reviewer noted had MORE than enough filling but I just heaped 'er in!!:) This was a fantastic recipe!!! Read More

Delicious. Go heavy on the celery and mushrooms so that you get some in every bite. update- I made this again with sauteed apples and onions as a filling (with the cheese) instead of celery and mushrooms... so good and actually pretty filling! Read More

Added a clove of garlic to the saute and put on panko bread crumbs on top of the cheese. Yum! Read More

This was delicious and pretty simple to make!! I used deicata and a deicata/acorn hybrid since that was what we had and I added bread crumbs on top (before the cheese) and it turned out great. A LOT of flavors. Also we dont have a microwave so I just baked the squash at 375 for a half hour. It was our main dish since we dont eat meat and it was very filling. I will be making this again.

Absolutely Wonderful! What a nice change from the usual brown sugar ect. method. I did find that I could have filled 2 squash (4 halves) with the "stuffing" mixture. I've already passed the recipe on. A definate keeper! Read More

I'm trying to eat healthier & stay away from sugar so I thought this looked interesting from the usual brown sugar recipes. I used olive oil instead of butter also sauteed some garlic & used dried parsley as that's what I had in the house. You can adjust the amount of celery & onion to your taste. Read More

Perfect and easy! Portabella mushrooms and a little garlic go very well. To serve just cut the squash in quarters and place on the plate! Read More

I classify this as a five star. It's got lots of vegetables and flavor with the cheese just being the extra part of it. It is definetly a do again recipe. Read More
