Acorn squash was one of my favorite foods when I was growing up. I liked it plain, roasted, with butter and salt and pepper in the well, no sugar, just like my mother always made it. So delectable... This one stuffed with sausage and pineapple sounds pretty good too. From Mom's Woman's Day "Collector's Cookbook," 1975 Enjoy!
