Don't throw the seeds away - clean them off, toss with oil, a pinch of salt and pepper. and roast them in the oven for a delicious, crunchy snack.
To make the filling: • Cook sausage and onion • Then add spinach, dried cranberries, rice and chicken stock. • Simmer for 10 minutes to let the flavors come together.
The filling will be cooked and ready to go when squash is done. Then, stuff each half with sausage and rice filling and put back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
