MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2011

I modified this a bit but I used the same method of cooking. I used Italian turkey sausage and substituted mild peppers for the celery. I only had one large acorn squash, so the stuffing was heaped up pretty high. This was my first time to cook acorn squash, though, and I was quite pleased with it. Cooking the squash in the microwave worked well except that I have a small microwave and did not have a pan that would fit in there and allow me to cook both halves of the squash at the same time. Still, it did not take long and I could prepare the rest of the meal while the squash cooked. We will definitely have this again while winter squash is in season.
