I was seriously disappointed. My squash was gross from the beginning though, after steaming the 4" white squash, the insides were snotty slimy. Kept the firmer flesh to be chopped into the filling & rest of the snot & seeds were destined for the garbage disposal. The filling was DELICIOUS except for being overly salty. I added a half tsp of sea salt which was a huge mistake - I should have tasted the mixture 1st, but I had only used half the bacon! But it was still really salty once combined with the cheese (I used 1/4 c of parmesan blend that includes romano & asiago cheeses as well). After seeing how slimy & wet the insides of the squash was, I only used half of the soft bread crumbs I had ready & used nice dry panko for the rest. It did the trick & the squash was NOT slimy after baking at least. I also shredded in a handful of spinach leaves and chopped some sun dried tomatoes & threw in for some color and flavor depth and it was soooo good. The squash on the other hand was a flavorless wet mush on the outside of a really tasty stuffing (maybe it should have been basted in garlic oil then roasted or cooked in chicken broth prior to stuffing instead of steaming it??)
