Unbelievably Delicious Stuffed Acorn Squash . . . Easy

This was inspired by a post from one of our followers (thank you Laurie)! She inquired about recipe ideas for cooking acorn squash for her son’s vegetarian girlfriend. Since I had an acorn squash lying around, I decided to experiment with whatever I had in the house. I came upon onions, garlic, mushrooms, and spinach and WOW did they make the perfect combo to go along with the buttery squash.

The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it can be used in many ways. Serve as the main dinner entrĂ©e along with a simple salad, or use just 1/2 a squash as a side dish for fish or chicken. I discovered the next morning that it actually made for a surprisingly delicious “out of the box” breakfast.

I didn’t measure ingredients, but the following recipe should be close enough to make about 4 halves (2 whole acorn squashes).

ENJOY! This dish is really incredibly delicious. I give it 5 stars out of 5! A must try.
