1 large yellow onion, chopped
1/2 C. chicken or vegetable stock
1/4 C. white wine
5 T. olive oil
2 t. dried tarragon
1 t. salt
1/2 t. fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 375 F. Knock stem off squash and cut in half lengthwise. Brush edges with oil, lay cut-side down in 9" x 13" baking pan. Roast in oven for 1 hour or until tender. Meanwhile, saute the chanterelles in a large skillet over medium high heat with 2 T. oil until tender. Remove from pan. Saute the onions in the same skillet over medium heat with 2 T. oil until nicely browned. Add back mushrooms, chicken stock, wine, tarragon, salt and pepper, and simmer together a few minutes. Mix the bread crumbs and cheese together in a bowl. When the squash is done, remove from oven, let cool a bit, and use a fork to shred into a large mixing bowl. Add the onion/mushroom mixture to the squash and toss together. Put mixture back into the baking pan and top with the crumb/cheese mixture. Bake another 20-30 minutes or until topping is browned. Broil briefly if needed.
