Roast acorn squash halves in oven for 45 minutes at 375°, or until golden brown and soft.
While squash is baking, cook onions, peppers, and celery in oiled sauté pan over medium-low heat until soft. Add sausage, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper and continue cooking until sausage is done.
Remove squash from oven and scoop out the filling into a large mixing bowl. (Careful! We used gloves because the squash will be very hot.)
Add sausage and veggies to the mixing bowl and stir together.
Scoop filling back into squash halves and top with desired amount of cheese. Bake 10-15 minutes until cheese begins to melt.
