“This isn’t happening to you for a reason. Well, one reason: I enjoy it!”~Ramsay Snow

If Ramsay Snow had just tried this stuffed squash, Theon Greyjoy might still have his… sausage. Alas there is no sausage in this recipe, though there are some pine nuts. For Reek’s sake, let’s continue.

Start by removing the insides of the squash, including all the stringy bits.

Then sprinkle some onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper on some parchment paper. Place the squash cut side down. Then place into the oven at 350 F for 30 minutes.

While your squash cooks, saute the onions, carrots, pine nuts, and herbs in a pan over medium high heat.

When the squash has cooked for ~30 minutes, remove it from the oven and flip over to reveal the cavity.

Then fill ’em up! Spoon as much of the mix into the empty squashes! Grate some of your cheese of choice over the top of the squash, poking in larger crumbly bits when you can. Then back into the oven for another 10-20 minutes or until the squash is soft.

“If you think this has a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention.”

Just kidding! This, unlike Game of Thrones, this recipe actually has an ending, and it’s DELICIOUS. And no one died. The end.
