Cut acorn squash in half, scoop out seeds, fill hollow with butter, chopped onion, and crumbled sausage, microwave until squash is soft (about 5 minutes).  Add cheese, microwave briefly to melt cheese.

The butter, sausage, and cheese provide more than enough calories without the vegetables, but the extra fat is needed to balance out all the carbs in the squash. (And it's just tasty.) The calorie count is a little lower if I subtract out the fiber from the carb component, but it is still a very large meal.  On the upside, all that fiber and fat is very filling, so I won't need to eat again soon after this.
