stuffed squash

so, we had this big squash from our garden...

and in my attempt to find something tasty to do with it, i asked christine. she had the wonderful suggestion to make some sort of sausage stuffed squash. i searched a few different recipes and basically just made up my own with ingredients i had on hand. i have to say, it was mighty tasty...

first, i cut the squash in half lengthwise, then drizzled a little olive oil over it and baked it in the oven at 350 until soft (about 20 minutes). meanwhile i cooked italian sausage, onions, red bell peppers, leeks and garlic on the stove and added some salt, pepper and seasoning. when it was done i took it off the stove (i poured the oil off) and mixed it with bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and pine nuts. then i took the squash and scooped out the seeds and filled them with the sausage mixture. i sprinkled a little more parmesan cheese on top and baked them for about 15-20 minutes more.
