How To Make Farro and Sausage Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash
Enjoy this easy roasted acorn squash that is loaded with everything savory and healthy – farro, chicken sausage, mushrooms, celery, onions, and sage.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mist the cut side of squash with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in a baking dish and add ¼ cup of water to the bottom of the pan.
Cover and bake for about 50 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
Meanwhile, cook farro in chicken broth according to package directions.
While the farro is cooking, cook chicken sausage on medium heat in a large saute pan, breaking up the meat into small pieces as it cooks until the sausage is cooked through and is browned. Set aside on a dish.
Add olive oil and onion to the pan. Sauté for about 1 minute, then add the celery, salt, and pepper to taste; cook for about 8 to 10 minutes until celery is soft.
Add the mushrooms and sage to the pan, more salt, and pepper as needed. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring.
Cove and cook for about 2 minutes, or until the mushrooms have released their juice and are cooked through. Return the cooled sausage and the cooked farro to the sauté pan and mix well.
Divide the farro stuffing evenly between the roasted acorn squash. Garnish with parsley and serve.
