How to Make It

Step 1

Place an oven rack in middle position; preheat to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil. Brush insides of squash with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Sprinkle with salt. Place, cut side down, on baking sheet; bake until tender, 30 to 45 minutes.

Step 2

Warm 1 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add sausage; cook, breaking into small pieces, until lightly browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in garlic and spinach; sauté until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 3

Preheat broiler to high. Flip squash halves over and fill with sausage mixture. In a small bowl, mix Parmesan, panko and remaining 1 Tbsp. oil. Sprinkle over squash. Broil until topping is golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve.

this was a nice change from the way i always cook acorn squash:  with butter and brown sugar!!!  used jimmy dean sausage patties chopped up and browned, and didn't use the panko.    will probably make this again.
