How to make it
- Wash outside of squash; cut squash in half and remove seeds; you can discard seeds or save for planting.
- Select a piece of cookware to accommodate the four halves of the squash like a large skillet.
- Place 1 or 2 dampened folded paper towels in the bottom of the pan.
- Place the squash cut side up on top of the wet towels.
- Cover the skillet.
- Cook on medium heat until vapor escapes from under the cover, about 4-6 minutes; turn to low.
- Cook on low about 15 minutes or until fork tender.
- While the squash is cooking, dice the onion.
- Crumble the sausage into the small skillet, or any of the other small utensils.
- Cook on medium heat until the sausage has lost its pink color.
- In a bowl, combine the rest of the ingredient.
- Mix with a fork.
- Add this mixture to the cooked sausage and onion.
- When the squash is fork tender, use a fork and pierce the yellow, meaty flesh 4-6 times in each half of the squash.
- Add about 1 Tbs. maple syrup (or 1 tsp butter) to each.
- Allow a minute or so to flavor the squash.
- Then add the sausage mixture to each squash, dividing it between the halves.
- Re-cover the large skillet and return to low heat for about 10 minutes. If the paper towel has dried out, add enough water to re-wet it, a scant 1/4 cup of water.
- Season to taste.
- Serve as a side dish with meat or poultry or as a main course with a bread stick and salad.
- Yield: 1/2 squash each

I love making stuffed acorn squash.
This recipe really speaks to me, using fresh from the garden vegetables and the addition of delicious dries cranberries.
