  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease foil.
  2. Cut the top off the squash using a serrated knife and scoop out seeds. Lightly salt the inside of squash. Place squash, cut-side down, onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour.
  4. Cook and stir sausage, celery, mushrooms, and onion in a skillet over medium heat until sausage is browned and vegetables are tender, 10 to 15 minutes; drain excess grease.
  5. Combine sour cream, Parmesan cheese, egg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Stir sausage mixture into sour cream mixture.
  6. Scoop the meat from the inside of squash, being careful not to tear the skin. Mash squash meat in a bowl.
  7. Spoon some of the sausage mixture into the hollowed squash, making a ring. Spoon a ring of mashed squash over sausage mixture. Continue layering until all the sausage mixture and mashed squash are used.
  8. Bake in the oven until heated through, 20 to 25 minutes.

I made this but used butternut squash. It was enough for 4 meals and very delicious. I only used 1/2 lb of Neeses hot sausage and that was plenty. Didn't have any mushrooms, but that would ha...

Excellent! I added a little ricotta like 1\4 cup, and more cheese, precorino Romano.

I substituted hot sausage...this will deff blow you away!
