Recipe in: One Dish Dinners

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Ham and Quinoa

Total time: 60 minutes   35 if using microwave
     The squash bakes while the stuffing is prepared and just needs 10 minutes to finish.  I usually can't get all of the stuffing in, so I keep it warm and serve it on the side.  The salty ham and slightly crunchy quinoa contrast well with the sweet squash.  And, yes, the mustard works too!
