 Acorn Squash Stuffed with Beef and Rice

Menu for this Week

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Beef and Rice

Total time: 60 minutes, 35 if you use a microwave
     The squash bakes while the stuffing is prepared and just needs 10 - 15 minutes to finish.  I usually can't get all of the stuffing in, so I keep it warm and serve it on the side.  This stuffing has a bit of an Asian influence with toasted sesame seeds stirred in at the end.

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Beef and Rice Ingredients:

 Instructions:

Note: If the stuffing doesn't all fit (depending on size of squash) keep it warm and serve on the side. 

To toast sesame seeds:  Put them into a dry, nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Toss or stir them about in the pan until lightly golden, about 5 minutes.
