Stuffed Turban Squash or Gourds Aren't Just for Decorations

I picked up this beautiful turban squash a few weeks ago over at the farm where we go apple picking.

I have been trying to figure out what to make with it. Finally it dawned on me that I should stuff it. 
So I finally cooked it up. I cut off the top scooped out the seeds and drizzled some olive oil on it. Placed it in a baking dish that was filled 3/4 with water and baked it at 375º for about an hour until soft. 

Then we made some stuffing. You can make any stuffing you like we made stuffing from brown rice, TVP, greens, and some homemade white gravy. 

The meal was a success with the whole family! We will definitely be making it again.

I had no idea you could eat these guys! What would you compare the flavor to?

The flavor is sweet and a bit nutty, somewhat similar to an acorn squash. It is very tasty.
