Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

1. Pre heat oven to 400. Cut squash in half, length-wise and scoop out the seeds.

2. Melt one tablespoon of coconut oil and brush insides of squash with oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and cinnamon to taste. Roast for 60 minutes.

3. While squash is roasting, melt remaining coconut oil in a pan over medium heat and brown the sausage. Remove sausage from pan and let cool in a mixing bowl. Leave the fat in the pan.

4. Finely dice the onion, celery and garlic and sauté over medium heat for a few minutes-- until they are softened. Add some salt and pepper. Then add the chopped apples and sauté for a couple more minutes.

5. Remove from heat and add to the mixing bowl with the sausage. Allow to cool.

6. When sausage and vegetable mixture are cool enough to handle, add egg and shredded coconut. Mix with clean hands until well combined.

7. After an hour, remove squash from the oven. Divide the stuffing among the 4 halves-- the stuffing should be mounded-- and bake for another 20 minutes.

This is a delicious recipe, I am making it for the second time tonight for supper. We don't eat pork, so I used hot chicken italian sausage and tonight I am adding some red bell pepper. Try this, it's easy, good and you 'll be glad that you did.
