Stuffed Delicata Squash
Delicata Squash 2 each
Olive Oil 2 tbsp

Chicken Sausage 12 oz
White Onion 1 each
Celery - Chopped 2 stalks
Red Bell Peppers - Chopped 1 each
Shiitake Mushroom - Chopped 4 oz

1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  • 2. Drizzle the cut sides of the squash with oil and sprinkle with half of the salt and pepper. Place face down on a large baking sheet. Bake until tender and browned on the edges, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large saute pan cook sausage on medium heat, breaking up the meat into small pieces as it cooks until the sausage is cooked through and is browned. Move to the side and add the onion, celery, and peppers. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • 4. Add the mushrooms and thyme to the pan, more salt and pepper if needed, and cook, stirring 5 minutes.
  • 5.  Divide between the squash halves, top with parmesan cheese and bake 10 minutes. 

6. Once out of the oven, top with more parmesan cheese and enjoy!
