Sausage and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

I've never really given squash much of a chance, but when I saw this recipe I was intrigued. Our variation turned out delicious and the squash was cooked perfectly and fell right into your fork when you grabbed it with the stuffing.
It was really simple but had a really impressive look and taste, will make again, especially for company!

My friend had made something similar only the other week and also said it turned out awesome- 2 recommendations= make it!
