Stuffing Acorn Squash

Having had lots of squash around this winter I've been trying out lots of things to do with it, including stuffing acorn squash. I'm looking for a savory stuffing that makes it more like a meal than a side dish, but I have yet to find the right thing. First I tried a rice and sausage stuffing hat called for some of the squash to be scraped out and mixed with the filling - the end result was to lose the flavor of the squash entirely, making it just a paste to hold the other stuff together. Then I tried an orzo and cheese filling that left the squash whole - this turned out basically like mac'n'cheese in squash, with no mixing of flavors at all really. It was like two separate dishes. So, does anyone have a good recipe for stuffed squash where the flavor of the squash is retained AND the flavors of the stuffing really work with it?
