This Twice Baked Squash recipe will have you going back for seconds!

From, "Colorado Colore: A Palate of Tastes"  by The Junior League of Denver, Inc. 


3-1/2 cups water
1 cup wild rice blend
3 (10- to 12-ounce) orange acorn squash,
cut into halves and seeded
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
2 cups finely chopped onions
2 teaspoons crumbled dried sage leaves
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup hazelnuts, roasted and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
3 Tablespoons cranberries
3 Tablespoons hazelnuts, roasted and coarsely chopped


Bring the water and wild rice to a boil in a large heavy saucepan; reduce the heat.  Simmer, covered, for 1 hour or until the rice is tender; drain.  Remove the rice to a large bowl.
Arrange the squash halves cut side down on an oiled baking sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until tender; reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees.  Let stand until cool.  Scoop out the squash pulp carefully, leaving a 1/4-inch shell.  Place the pulp in a small bowl.
Heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Saute the onions in the butter for 15 minutes or until very tender.  Stir in the sage.  Saute for 2 minutes.  Add the wild rice, squash pulp and lemon juice, mixing well and breaking up the squash pulp into smaller pieces.  Stir in 1/2 cup dried cranberries, 1/2 cup hazelnuts, parsley and brown sugar.  Season with salt and pepper.
Mound the rice mixture evenly in the reserved shells.  You may prepare up to this point 6 hours in advance and store, covered, in the refrigerator.  Arrange the shells in a roasting pan.  Bake for 25 minutes or until heated through.  Remove the stuffed shells to a serving platter.  Sprinkle with 3 Tablespoons cranberries and 3 Tablespoons hazelnuts.  If time is of the essence, pierce the squash with a fork and microwave for about 10 minutes or until tender.
