It's CSA time and I was looking for something interesting to do with too much summer squash. This was delicious! I couldn't find the spicy lamb sausage, so I improvised: I used ground lamb and spiced it with minced onion and garlic, cumin, paprika, and cayenne as well as salt and black pepper. This seemed easier than removing the casing from an already prepared sausage anyway. I considered skipping the cheese to cut down on the richness, but decided to use feta instead of the goat cheese. It really added an interesting dimension, so I am glad I didn't leave it out. Because I didn't have the small round squash pictured, I used a larger elongated "mediterranean" squash, and it took longer to bake. More like 40 minutes. Both my husband and I gave it 5 stars. I will definitely use this recipe again.
Also, I felt badly about tossing the scooped out squash so I sauteed some onion and garlic along with the chopped up squash, added a half a seeded fresh tomato and stir fried the mixture with some cooked brown rice. It made the perfect side dish to accompany this meal.
