Italian Sausage and Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

Stuffed Acorn Squash sounded amazing! Beef, rice, veggies and goat cheese? PLUS some of my amazing mom’s homemade bread?! Heck, yeah!


2 Acorn Squash; halved & seeded
Drizzle Olive Oil
¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste


½ pound lean Ground Beef
½ cup Rice
⅔ cup Chicken Broth
¼ cup Onion; chopped
¼ cup Tomato; chopped
1 clove Garlic; minced
Salt and Pepper to taste


1 teaspoon fresh Parsley; chopped
¼ cup Goat Cheese Crumbles

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the squash halves on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Bake for 35 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a large saucepan with the rice, broth, onions, tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper over high heat. Cover and bring to a boil then reduce to simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is tender and all of the water is absorbed.
  4. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and brown the ground beef until cooked through. Drain and fold in the rice then stuff each half of the squash with the mixture then place back in the oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Top the squash with goat cheese crumbles and parsley then serve.
  6. Enjoy!
