Caramelized Onion, Apple and Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash (Paleo & Whole30)


2 small/med acorn squash, cut in half lengthwise and seeds/strings scooped out
1 lb sweet Italian sausage, casings removed, sugar free*
1 large onion (or 2 small) cut in half and sliced thin
3 tbsp ghee, coconut oil, or other cooking fat (for caramelizing the onions) + 2 tsp (for sautéing the garlic)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium-large apple, cored and diced
2 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
sea salt and black pepper to taste

*Check labels or look out for your local store’s store-made sausage, since they usually leave out sugar and preservatives. You can also check out the sugar free pork breakfast sausage from U.S. Wellness Meats, which is one of my favorites, or their sugar free Italian Sausage links!
