Ohhhh...I love eightball squash.  Can't wait to see it at the farmer's market and try this recipe out.  Thanks.

I don't believe I've ever heard of eightball squash.  Could you provide a description?  Is it a winter squash?
Thanks,
Dixie

you're welcome Dixie.  They're delicious and a lot of fun to cook with.  Next time I'm thinking of possibly adding toasted pine nuts to the stuffing but we really like eating them this way.
