Step 1

Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Cut two acorn squash in half. Scoop out the seeds.

Step 3

Place them on a baking sheet with the cut side facing up. Cook for 45 minutes or until the flesh is very soft.

Step 4

Place oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook them until they are slightly soft, approximately 5 minutes.

Step 5

Add the garlic and cook it for about 1 minute.

Step 6

Next add the ground beef and cook it until it's not pink, then add the spinach until it's wilted.

Step 7

Season with the salt, pepper, and the herbs.

Step 8

Take the squash out of the oven; place the meat mixture evenly into the 4 squash.

Step 9

Place back in the oven for 10 more minutes so the flavors can blend together. Let them cool for 5 minutes upon removing.
