Quinoa, Sausage, and Pecan Stuffed Acorn Squash

First I want to thank everyone that entered my Thankful Giveaway. I announced the winner yesterday, but it was so much fun I think I might just have another one before the holidays. 🙂 I also have to admit that there was a slight ulterior motive to the entry question I asked – I’m going to be doing another week of Christmas cookies and I wanted to feel out some new ideas from readers. Maybe you’ll see one of your favorites in the coming weeks!

I know you’re probably feeling the itch to move on to those holiday sweets and treats, and obviously so am I – but I have one last fall meal that I just have to share. This stuffed acorn squash is so warm, filling, and satisfying. After a friend of mine posted a picture of her quinoa stuffed squash on facebook a few weeks ago, I just couldn’t get it out of my head. So I asked her to direct me to the recipe and I adapted it (for my meat lovin’ man) from there.  I absolutely loved the crunch from the pecans, saltiness from the feta, and subtle sweetness from the squash. Jesse loved that I added the chicken sausage, but if you’re looking for a meatless meal, you could skip the sausage and just use the quinoa, feta, and pecans.

  1. I will be making these! I have tons of acorn squash from my CSA that I need to use up and I’ve been searching for the perfect recipe to do so!
