 1. Cut off top third of each squash.  Thoroughly scrape out seeds and loose
 fiber.  Place tops back on squash and place them on baking sheet.  Bake at
 350F until flesh is tender, 30 minutes. 
 2. Bring broth to boil in pan.  Add carrots, celery, green beans, and sweet
 red pepper and blanch until tender-crisp.  Reserve vegetables and drain off
 remaining stock into large measuring cup.  Add enough milk to make 1 1/2
 cups stock mixture. 
 3. Melt butter in heavy saucepan over medium heat.  Add onion and mushrooms
 and saute until soft, 2 to 3 minutes.  Stir in flour and cook 1 minute. 
 Gradually whisk in stock mixture until ingredients are well incorporated. 
 Add herbs and seasonings and cook over low heat 2 to 3 minutes.  Stir in
 reserved vegetables and turkey.  Remove from heat and keep warm. 
 4. Prepare biscuits 
 5. When Squash is done, remove from oven, and increase oven temperature to
 400F. Trim off excess flesh around edges of squash to create space for
 filling.  (Extra squash flesh can be added to filling). Spoon filling into
 each squash.  Top each with 1 unbaked biscuit round.  Place on baking sheet
 and bake until biscuits are done, about 20 minutes.  Makes 4 servings. 
 Note: Fresh herbs can be substituted for dried herbs, using twice the
