This hearty side dish is perfect for winter evening meals and complements an assortment of meats. I clipped it from a newspaper years ago and it soon became a family favorite.

"The sausage/apple mixture is really good. I found that the acorn squash needs to cook longer than 45 minutes before removing the cover. I will try cooking for an hour or maybe an hour and 20 minutes before uncovering next time. I also put a little salt, pepper, and butter in the hollow of the squash before adding the sausage mixture. I will be making this again!"
