  1. I made this yesterday for dinner. It turned out really good. I used the ingredients in the recipe. It was probably the squash I chose. Rounded on both ends which took much more time to prep. Each side held about a cup of stuffing. I made way too much, but baked the excess with the scraps from the squash chopped in it. I added 15 minutes baking time to get the squash extra soft and topped it all with Romano cheese. When I make it again I will add some chicken broth to the mix before adding to squash bowls.

  2. Cathy Kopp!!! ..I saw this recipe and need to make it..looking forward to getting ingredients this weekend. I’m hoping that it’s still yummy with less onions and garlic…got me a fussy eater…Wondering if you and I met at the Strong House Inn in Vermont several years ago…funny because if this is you, your name came up when I saw Pam this past weekend…..

    1. Hello Laurie, No it wasn’t me, I’ve never been in Vermont, although it is on my bucket list. Hope you enjoy the sausage stuffed squash!
