Stuffed Delicata Squash

We love Delicata Squash because it’s SO easy to prepare. No peeling- just slice in half and scoop out the seeds. It cooks fast and tastes similar to sweet corn- so even people who aren’t squash fans will enjoy it!

We choose to stuff it with savory mushrooms, Italian chicken sausage and top it with parmesan cheese.

Stuffed Delicata Squash

  • 4 large delicata squash, ends cut off, sliced vertically and deseeded
  • 1 package of Bilinski’s Organic Mild Italian Chicken Sausage
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • 3/4 cup of  chopped Crimini Mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 stalks of celery, minced
  • 6 tbsp. of Organic Valley shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • your favorite fresh herbs to taste


Preheat oven to 400°F. Brush the cut sides of the squash with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place face down on a large baking sheet. Bake until tender and browned on the edges, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large saute pan cook sausage on medium heat, breaking up the meat into small pieces as it cooks until the sausage is cooked through and is browned.

We used a food processor to chop the sausage and mushrooms to get a uniform texture.

Add the onion and celery; cook until celery is soft, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the pan, more salt and pepper if needed and cook, stirring 5 minutes, then cook covered for 2 minutes, or until the mushrooms are soft and cooked through.

Divide (1/2 cup) between the squash, top with parmesan cheese and bake 10 minutes.

    There is a mention of mushrooms in the instructions, but nothing shows in the ingredient list. Can this be updated with amounts, so we know how much to add.

      Yes! Good catch– we’ve edited this to include the mushrooms. 🙂
