These delicata squash boats are roasted to perfection then stuffed with slow cooker turkey meatballs for a delicious healthy dinner!
Helllllooooo internet land! Today, I wanted to share with you guys how we ate our Crockpot Turkey Meatballs I posted last week!
I was trying to think of a veggie to go with our meatballs when I saw the delicatas hanging out in the produce bowl on the counter. Delicata squash has a sweet, creamy taste that we think resembles cornbread, so I knew they would be a perfect pair with the meatballs.
I love delicata squash. I wish it were available all year round! Some of my favorite recipes here at HH like breakfast stuffed delicata squash, delicata squash tian, and delicata breakfast bake I make over and over every fall/winter until I can’t find delicata squash anymore.
Plus, they are so easy to cook! When the meatballs had about 30 minutes left, I washed the delicata squash and cut them half. Then I scooped out the seeds and placed them face down on a greased a foil-lined cookie sheet. I then roasted them until they were nice and tender, about 20 minutes at 400F.
Then I filled them with about three meatballs per delicata squash half and topped them with parmesan cheese. You could also top them with mozzarella and stick them back in the oven to broil for a couple of minutes. That would be DELICIOUS!

Meatball Marinara Stuffed Delicata Squash Boats
These delicata squash boats are roasted to perfection then stuffed with slow cooker turkey meatballs in a rich marinara sauce for a delicious healthy dinner!
Make Slow Cooker Turkey Meatballs
When you have 30 minutes of the turkey meatballs cooking, preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with foil and grease foil. Wash and dry delicata squash. Cut off the stem end and then cut the delicata squash in half (lengthways) and remove the seeds. Place face down on a baking sheet and bake them until tender, about 20 minutes.
When delicata squash is done, fill each boat with 3-4 slow cooker turkey meatballs.
*I think you should make my Crockpot Turkey Meatballs, because they are bomb AF. Yep, that good! But, if you don't want to pull out the crockpot then you can use any meatball (turkey, beef, chicken, etc) tossed with about 2 cups of your favorite marinara sauce.
