Rated 5 out of 5 by from I whack off the stem first on the squash. I whack off the stem first on the squash. Then I place it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes on med. Let it cool for about 10 minutes and then it is EASY TO CUT IN HALF. It also cuts the baking time to 20 minutes in the beginning. I also use dried cranberries instead of raisins. You can also substitute apple sauce for the butter or margarine in the stuffing recipe to cut the fat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was so much better than I expected! This was so much better than I expected! I did take the advise to micro the squash first to make cutting easier. I also used ground beef with onions and craisins instead of sausage and raisins. It was delicious! Even my very picky 5 year old ate it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This was alright. This was alright. There just wasn't enough taste for me. It was kinda bland. And the sausage wasn't great either. Definately change the sausage if you choose to make it for yourself.
