Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
3 butternut squash
1 lb. Italian sweet sausage
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 bag seasoned stuffing mix (or your favorite leftover stuffing)
1/2 cup chopped parsley
2 eggs, beaten
1. Prepare the butternut squash by cutting in half vertically, scoop out the seeds, leaving at least 1/2″ bowl shaped flesh
2. Remove the sausage from casings and fry the sausage meat until brown and crumbly. Add onion and garlic and saute until onions are soft. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
3. Stir in stuffing mix, parsley and eggs. Spoon sausage mixture into the squash.
4. Place in a greased casserole dish and tent with aluminum foil. Bake in a 350 F oven about 40 minutes or until squash can be pierced easily with the tip of a knife. Remove foil and bake 10 minutes until stuffing gets slightly brown and crispy.
