Add my husband to the bunch who hate squash but liked this. I guess the appeal for them must be that the squash is kind of "diluted" or tamed by the other vegetables. Whatever the reason, we both enjoyed this a lot. No changes other than to add a little minced garlic to the sauteed vegetables, and it was fine as is. Sometimes simple flavors are nice in their own right without a lot of additional herbs and spices.
I thought this was bland and rather fattening. My husband thought that there were way to many onions. Not very flavorFULL!
Delicious. Go heavy on the celery and mushrooms so that you get some in every bite. **update- I made this again with sauteed apples and onions as a filling (with the cheese) instead of celery and mushrooms... so good, and actually pretty filling!
Oh my, oh WOW, and HOLY COW! Made this last night, and my BF ate an ENTIRE SQUASH!!! He loved it so much he didn't hardly touch the main dish, which was one of his faves. Omitted the butter, started with 4 slices thichk cut bacon (cut into pieces) and sauteed veggies in the grease, used a little less onion and a little more mushrooms, and added a bit more salt. As another reviewer noted, had MORE than enough filling, but I just heaped 'er in!!:) This was a fantastic recipe!!!
Absolutely Wonderful! What a nice change from the usual brown sugar ect. method. I did find that I could have filled 2 squash (4 halves) with the "stuffing" mixture. I've already passed the recipe on. A definate keeper!
Added a clove of garlic to the saute, and put on panko bread crumbs on top of the cheese. Yum!
This was delicious, and pretty simple to make!! I used deicata and a deicata/acorn hybrid since that was what we had, and I added bread crumbs on top (before the cheese), and it turned out great. A LOT of flavors. Also, we dont have a microwave, so I just baked the squash at 375 for a half hour.
It was our main dish, since we dont eat meat, and it was very filling. I will be making this again.
I'm trying to eat healthier & stay away from sugar so I thought this looked interesting from the usual brown sugar recipes. I used olive oil instead of butter, also sauteed some garlic & used dried parsley, as that's what I had in the house. You can adjust the amount of celery & onion to your taste.
