Stuffed Acorn Squash

Stuffed Acorn squash (this is just something we did, and loved, there is no real recipe)

2 acorn squash
tomato sauce (I most always use the same pomodoro sauce recipe that is with the eggplant recipe above.)
summer squash
green, red, yellow, orange peppers (It is good with any or a bit of all of them)
garbanzo beans

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put acorn squash in the microwave for one minute just to get warm enough that it is easy to cut. Cut in half. remove seeds and membranes. Microwave just to get tender. Cut, dice and slice the veggies. However you like them, just small enough that you can have a bit of everything in the squash.
I sauteed mine with olive oil, garlic and bit of little red pepper flakes. Arrange your acorn squash on a cookie sheet. fill with sauteed veggies, pomodoro sauce and garbanzo beans. (I also put cheese on top of ours.) and bake about 25 mins.

[Cal is not a huge fan of garbanzo beans so I do his with some whole wheat pasta, I can't remember if it was a spinny kind or just a tubular kind, but that tasted really good too. I have also seen stuffed squash recipes with brown rice or orzo]
