Stuffed Turban Squash

3 lb turban squash
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lb pork sausage (I love the Hilbelly Sausage from Smoking Goose. It has nutmeg, clove and ginger in it)
1 C chopped celery
1 C mushrooms
1 C chopped onion
1/3 C sour cream
1/2 C Parmesan cheese, divided
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 C cooked wild rice
1 tsp Roasting Herbs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Carefully cut off top of squash and scoop out seeds. Rub with olive oil,  salt and pepper.
Place upside down on a parchment lined baking sheet and roast until tender. (About an hour)
In a medium skillet saute pork sausage. Remove from pan to paper towel to drain. In same pan, saute celery, mushrooms and onion until soft.
Carefully scoop flesh from squash, leaving enough that it is still sturdy.
Stir together cooked vegetables, pork sausage, squash flesh, sour cream, half of the parmesan, egg and wild rice. Spoon into squash, top with remaining parmesan and bake until heated through.

2 TB butter
Olive oil
