Preheat your oven to 350°F. Set aside a baking sheet.
Slice 1/4 inch from the top and bottom of each squash so it sits flat. Then cut in half and remove seeds.
Brush with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and bake for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, make the stuffing.
Set a large frying pan over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of oil along with apple, celery, cranberries and thyme. Fry 5 min.
Add the salt, bread crumbs, 1-2 tbsp more oil, parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Stir to blend evenly.
Add stuffing to squash halves using a spoon. Bake for 15 more minutes. Serve and enjoy!
