Servings 4 people


  • 2 Acorn Squash
  • 1 lb Sage Italian Sausage ground
  • 3 Pink lady apples diced
  • 2 C Arugula
  • 1 tbsp Rosemary
  • 1 tbsp Minced garlic
  • 1/2 C Diced onion
  • 1 tbsp Date syrup or maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp Breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 C Parmesan cheese shaved
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400. Cut squash in half. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt & pepper on the squash. Bake face down for 30 minutes, or until fork pokes through. While the squash is in the oven, cook sausage in a skillet. Once sausage is cooked, drain grease and place sausage in a separate bowl. Add onion and garlic. Once fragrant, add in diced apples. Once apples soften, add sausage back in. Add in rosemary and salt & pepper. Once squash is cooked, scrape out the seeds. Stuff the squash with the sausage/apple mixture. Top with drizzle of date syrup, breadcrumbs, and parmesan cheese. Broil in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown. Preferably served with a delicious baguette! :)
