  1. In a large saucepan, combine the rice with contents of seasoning mix, broth, sage and thyme. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 23-25 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is almost absorbed. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute celery and onion in oil until tender. Stir in cranberries, pecans and parsley. Remove from the heat. Stir in rice mixture.
  2. Cut squash in half widthwise. Remove and discard seeds and membranes. With a sharp knife, cut a thin slice from the bottom of each half so squash sits flat. Fill squash halves with about 1/2 cup rice mixture. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Pour water into pan.
  3. Coat one side of a large piece of heavy-duty foil with nonstick cooking spray. Cover pan tightly with foil, coated side down. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes or until squash is tender.

I thought this recipe was deliciious! I changed it up a bit though. I used vegetable broth, being a vegetarian. I also used walnuts and apples. It made the meal more meaty and filling. I also di...

Follow the recipe! The rice can be made ahead of time and is even good on it's own.

YUM! I added an apple and rosemary as suggested by a couple users. This is a keeper for sure. The rice filling on its own is delectable.

Great taste, gourmet presentation! Only thing to add is that this is definitely not a side dish for me. I got two squash and it was enough for 4 and almost all of us had leftovers for the next d...

Excellent as a main dish or a side dish. The only thing it that I would let the squash roast before stuffing with the rice to avoid overly crunchy rice.

Very good basic recipe, but even better with addition of 1/2 teaspoon of oregano with the rice and mix. Add 3 oz of cremini mushrooms along with the cranberries. Remove the rice mixture from hea...

This was good, I used apple since I can't have cranberries. Am going to make again without the squash.
