Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

I love fall flavors!  Sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkin and of course acorn squash!  This is something that I threw together quickly and it ended up being amazing. I don’t do much microwave cooking, but it was too hot of a day to turn on the oven.  Plus, using the microwave made this come together very quickly.  Hope you like it!

1 cup rice (or seasoned rice mix)
1 acorn squash
½ lb spicy breakfast sausage
1 apple, roughly chopped
½ cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Cook the rice according to package directions.

Cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds.  Place cut side down on a microwaveable plate and heat in the microwave for 5 minutes.

Cook the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned.  Drain on paper towels.

In a bowl, stir together the rice, sausage and apple.  Place the squash halves in microwavable bowls and fill with the rice mixture.  Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 more minutes.

Remove plastic wrap and top with cheese and microwave for 2 minutes to melt cheese.
