Decorate your fall meal plan with these squash and pumpkin dishes:
1) Farro and Sausage Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash
Warm up your kitchen with the tantalizing smell of Skinny Taste‘s savory baked squash dish. Simply hollow out and season the acorn squash with salt and pepper before placing in the oven. Cook the nutty farro stuffing and sauté the sweet chicken sausage while the acorn bowls bake. This easy dish is perfect for a weeknight meal. You may even want to add it to your Thanksgiving spread!
2) Beef-Stuffed Butternut Squash
Bored of basic roasted butternut squash? Pep up dinner with Paleo Leap‘s delicious mixture of beef, bacon, and vegetables stuffed into butternut squash halves. First, the halves are baked with salt and pepper in the oven for forty minutes. The cinnamon-seasoned beef is browned with skillet-softened veggies and sliced mushrooms. After baking, the flesh of the squash is scraped out and added to the stuffing. Bacon and caramelized onions top the dish off for a great finishing touch.
3) Savory Ground Beef and Spaghetti Squash Casserole
Squash noodles are a great healthy alternative to regular pasta. This fall-themed casserole from Mother Rimmy’s Recipes is a comfort dish with staying power. Spaghetti Squash noodles are seriously simple to make, you don’t even need a spiralizer. Just microwave the squash, scoop out the seeds, and use a fork to shred the skin into noodles. Beef broth, oregano, garlic, and the squash are added to a large skillet after the beef is browned. Plate and finish off with a sprinkle of fresh parsley.
4) Beef and Pumpkin Shepard’s Pie
Pumpkin dominates fall for a good reason. It’s sweet and irresistibly creamy with an intoxicating aroma. Cafe Delites knows the importance of this seasonal treat, and features it in their unique twist on shepherd’s pie. Between the crispy parmesan cheesy top and beef, potato, and veggie filling, your whole family will go to bed stuffed full of fall-flavored goodness.
