|3||Medium acorn squash|
|Salt and pepper|
|1||(500g) Maple Leaf® Sausage Meat|
|4||Stalks celery, finely diced|
|1||Medium onion, finely diced|
|2||Medium carrots, finely diced|
|1 cup||(250 mL) Cooked white rice|
PREHEAT oven to 350°F (180°C).
CUT squash in half and scoop out seeds and discard. Season with salt and pepper and place cut side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes or until tender but not mushy. Remove from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C).
REMOVE sausage from the casing. Cook in a large skillet over medium-high, breaking apart with a wooden spoon. Continue to cook until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Add celery, onion and carrots; stir in cooked rice.
DIVIDE the sausage and rice mixture between the squash halves, filling the cavities heaping full.
PLACE in a 9x13” (3.5L) baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 5-10 minutes or until completely heated through.
GARNISH with parsley or fresh herbs and serve.
