100+ ideas


Stuffed butternut squash is filled with only four ingredients, but packed with flavor. The combination of sweet butternut squash, spicy Italian sausage, and tangy goat cheese has quickly become a fall favorite!

Here's what you'll need...

You'll Need:

– 1 large butternut squash –  3 tablespoons ghee or butter – 1 cup quinoa – 1 pound hot Italian sausage – 4 ounces goat cheese


Preheat the oven to 400° F. Cut the butternut squash in half long-wise. Remove the seeds from each half.


Using a metal sheet pan, place the butternut squash flesh side up. Rub 1 tablespoon of ghee or melted butter on the flesh of each side of the squash. Season with a dash of salt and pepper. Place in the oven and allow to roast for 1 hour.


Meanwhile, cook quinoa according to package. Remove the casing from the Italian sausage. To a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of ghee over medium heat. Add in the Italian sausage and break into crumbles using a wooden spoon.


Crumble the goat cheese into small bites. Mix the quinoa, Italian sausage crumbles, and goat cheese together.


Once the squash has cooked, remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Slightly mash the squash to create ample room for the stuffing. Add the quinoa, sausage, and goat cheese mixture to the top of the squash boats.
