"All the flavors of fall are packed into this comforting meal. Serve one half per person as a main entree, or slice into wedges and serve as a side dish. Delicata squash are usually about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds each. If you don't have any leftover rice, feel free to leave it out or replace with any cooked grain."

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Brush cut sides of squash with 2 teaspoons oil. Place cut-sides down on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until soft, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add turkey sausage. Saute, breaking up into small crumbles, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add celery, onion, garlic, sage, rosemary and thyme. Continue cooking until vegetables are soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in rice, cherries, and parsley until mixture is warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Turn squash halves over so they are cut-side up. Fill with the sausage mixture and top with Parmesan cheese. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute brown rice for the wild rice if desired. I usually keep single-serve precooked rice cups in the pantry to use for recipes like these that only require a small amount of rice.
