Butternut squash is most often used as a part of a side dish, but with this Sausage-Stuffed Butternut Squash recipe, it really sings as a main dish! Winter squash, particularly this form of it, has just the right amount of sweetness to go well with most anything. I think that pairing it with these other healthy and fresh ingredients makes for a spectacular hearty dinner for the colder months of the year. And you can go easy on yourself since this is a low fat dish!
I had heard of stuffed eggplant, but I hadn’t tried using eggplant in a stuffing before. I have to say, it works really well for this recipe. It adds a bit of earthiness to balance the sweet and savory flavors nicely. Each butternut squash half is pretty much a meal in itself, though of course you could always throw in a good salad if you want something extra on the side. And of course you can expand the recipe, if you have a larger group to feed. Enjoy!
