  • Heat oven to 425ºF.
  • Brush cut sides of squash halves with dressing; place, cut sides down, on parchment-covered rimmed baking sheet. Bake 25 min. or until tender.
  • Meanwhile, prepare Kraft Dinner in large saucepan as directed on package. While Macaroni is cooking, crumble sausage into medium skillet; cook over medium-high heat 5 to 7 min. or until done, stirring occasionally. Drain. Reserve 4 small sage leaves for garnish; chop remaining sage leaves.
  • Scrape pulp from squash halves into large bowl, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells. Add Dinner, sausage, chopped sage and apples to squash; mix well. Spoon into shells; top with shredded cheese.
  • Bake 10 min. or until filling is heated through and cheese is melted. Garnish with reserved sage leaves.

Preparing Acorn Squash for Stuffing

To prevent filled squash shells from tipping over in the oven, cut thin slice off bottom of each empty shell before filling and baking as directed.

Selecting and Storing Acorn Squash

Acorn squash are a popular variety of hard-skinned winter squash. Choose squash that are heavy for their size. The rinds should be hard, deep-colored and free of spots. Store in a cool, dark, well-ventilated place up to 1 month.

Apple Varieties

Look for apples that are firm and well colored with smooth, blemish-free skins. Choose the variety that best suits your needs. All-purpose apples for both eating raw and cooking uses include Cortland, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Fuji, Gravenstein, Empire, Jonagold, McIntosh, Pippin, Spy and Winesap. Best snacking apples are Gala, Golden Delicious and Red Delicious. When cooking, use Rhode Island Greening, Rome Beauty or York Imperial.
