Baked Delicata Squash with Apple Stuffing

Here is a squash recipe that can also be a real fridge cleaner. Get crazy when it comes to filling choices and use up your carrots or fennel or whatever. This dish is the meaning of fall. We often top with a little cheese and have even been known to add sausage to filling.

  • 2 sm. apples, unpeeled, diced
  • 2 tbsp. diced celery
  • 1/4 cup minced leeks
