    I like to stuff my squash with something savory, like spicy sausage stuffing but your dish makes me re-think the whole concept!

    This looks awesome! I roasted an acorn squash the other night and chopped it up and threw it in a salad. You’re making me wish I had stuffed it instead though!

    I linked to this recipe from Examiner. 🙂

    hmm… is this something you think could be adapted for use with butternut squash? Obviously not really “stuffed”. I have a butternut that I’m looking for something to do with…
