This is the actual email that Lorna sent me!

“Heather,

This was so delicious that I had to send it to you. I may have actually licked the last remaining scraps from the squash shell.

We used the Hills Foods rosemary lamb sausage (from Kitchen Quickies).

I cooked the squash the night before to speed up the prep in the morning. Scooped out the squash and refrigerated it, while leaving the shells at room temp.
