I have served this variation of squash often. It's a nice side dish, especially appropriate in the fall— or it can be used for a main luncheon dish. If you prepare your squash ahead and freeze it, it takes very little time to put this recipe together.

Ingredients

  • 2 large acorn squash
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium apple, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 pound pork sausage, cooked and drained
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds

Directions

  1. Cut squash in half; remove seeds. Place with cut side down in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Add 1/2 in of water to pan. Cover and bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until tender. Cool; scoop out pulp (should have about 4 cups).
  2. In a large skillet, saute the cabbage, onion and apple in butter for 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in the sausage, salt, sage, thyme and pepper. Remove from the heat; add squash. Place in a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with almonds.
