Ratings & Reviews
A Great Dinner Meal!
My husband loved this meal. The acorn squash provides a perfect bowl and the ground beef, combined with the roasted red pepper and tomato soup, is very flavorful. Also, it would be very easy to make this recipe a meal for four. Would recommend you give it a try.
