Delicata Squash stuffed with Beans and Greens


2 medium Delicata squash

Salt and pepper

Lightly flavored oil of your choice

2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

10 oz white beans, cooked

4 large handfuls of greens, spinach, kale, collards, chard, etc…

1 Tbsp sage leaves, minced

4 Tbsp breadcrumbs

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.  Brush the oil over the insides of the squash and season with salt and pepper.  Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven until just tender (make sure they aren’t so soft they are falling apart).

Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the greens.  Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Turn the heat back down to medium and add the white beans and sage.  Season with salt and pepper and set aside until the squash is done.

Remove the squash from the oven.  Fill with the kale and white bean mixture. Mix the Parmesan and bread crumbs together and top the stuffed squash with the mixture.  Bake for another 10 minutes, or until the Parmesan is melted and the stuffing is heated through.

Serve and enjoy.
