Acorn Squash Feta Casserole

Fred and I went to our Couples Prayer Group this last weekend and I made this recipe, it seemed to be a hit! Leftovers are delicious hot or cold. This recipe comes from Taste of Home. Enjoy!

Acorn Squash Feta Casserole


TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour 35 min.

2 large acorn squash (about 1-1/2 pounds each)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
2 eggs
1 cup (8 ounces) plain yogurt
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1-1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Dash cayenne pepper, optional
1/4 cup sunflower kernels
Directions: Cut squash in half; discard seeds. Place squash cut side down in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; add 1/2 in. of hot water. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes. Drain water from pan; turn squash cut side up. Bake 10 minutes longer or until squash is tender; cool slightly. Carefully scoop out squash; place in a large bowl and mash. Set aside. In a large skillet, saute onion and garlic in butter until tender. Add peppers; saute until crisp-tender. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and yogurt until blended. Stir in the squash, onion mixture, feta cheese, salt, pepper and cayenne if desired. Transfer to a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with sunflower kernels.
