Maryeileen Bronze Request Medal for All Time! 59 Requests
1 acorn squash, halved and seeded
2 Tbsp. butter
1 cup diced celery
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup fresh mushrooms
1 tsp chopped parsley
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/8 tsp salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Place squash cut side down in a glass dish. Cook in microwave approximately 20 minutes on high until almost tender.
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and add celery and onion; saute until transparent. Stir in mushrooms; cook 2 to 3 minutes more. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and parsley. Divide mixture in half, spoon into squash and cover.
Cook 15 minutes in the preheated 350 degrees oven. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and put back in the oven until the cheese bubbles.
Please Note: I microwaved the squash for only 10 minutes. The correct time would depend on your microwave. I did not use celery or mushrooms and it turned out great. Also, I sauteed the onions and butter in a frying pan, not a saucepan as the recipe states.
