Acorn Squash with Chicken Sausage and Brown Rice

With the stomach flu out of our house, I am back to cooking. This Fall weather makes me want to be in the kitchen. Tonight we had another new recipe. First of all, I was excited about cooking brown rice in the oven. So much easier than on the stove. Rice, broth and spices, in the oven for 50 minutes and voila!

Then, I baked the acorn squash...yum!
Then, chicken sausage was browned in a skillet. I had chicken sausage with apples and Gouda in it. The chicken was removed and put in a bowl. Then, onions and red peppers were sauteed until they were tender.

The veggies and rice were added to the sausage in the bowl. Chunks of the squash were scooped out and added to the mix. The squash needs to keep 1/4-inch thick walls so they stay sturdy.

Then, the mixture was added to the squash "bowls" and put in the oven to "warm" for 20 minutes. I forgot to take a picture of the individual "bowls" that each person got.

Served with salad and whole grain bread...this was a yummy fall dinner!

Here is the link to the recipe that I used and modified:
