How to make it

  • 1/2 the squash lengthwise and remove the seeds, (save & bake for a nutty snack)
  • Chop the onion, celery and peppers into 1/4" pieces. Julienne the carrot. (or chop into 1/8" pcs.) Crush, then mince the garlic.
  • Slice the bacon into 1/4" x 1" slices.
  • Cook the bacon until almost done. Remove and drain or pat off excess grease with a paper towel. Pour off the fat in the pan until just a thin coating remains on the bottom.
  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Add the EVOO to the pan and heat it up.
  • Add the onion, peppers, celery, carrot and garlic. Sautee until the onion is translucent, adding the parsley, celery seed and Mrs. Dash a minute or two before done. Add the cooked bacon and mix well.
  • Scoop the stuffing into the squash's cavity, until they're slightly crowned. (any remaining stuffing can be saved for later, which typically doesn't happen in my case, it gets eaten immediately :-) Add a 1/2 Tbl. of butter or margarine to the top of the stuffing.
  • Wrap each squash in aluminum foil, wrapping from the bottom up.
  • Cook for approx. 1 hour, or until the squash is tender and soft to the touch.
