Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Cut each squash in half and drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil between the four squash pieces. Salt the inside of each squash half.
Combine all topping ingredients in a food processor and pulse until mixture is crumbly. Set aside while making the filling.
Saute ground meat in a saucepan with 1 tablespoon olive oil for 6-8 minutes, or until meat is cooked thoroughly.
Remove cooked meat and place in a large bowl. In the same saucepan, add 1 tablespoon oil, onion, apple and garlic. Saute for 5-6 minutes or until onions become translucent.
Combine ground meat, onion mixture, ⅔ of the breadcrumb topping mixture, and remaining filling ingredients in a large bowl. Toss to combine.
Place squash back in the oven for another 10-12 minutes. Enjoy! See this recipe in Healthy Meal Plan #3.
