This is the best of both worlds for me! One my favorite vegetables are any kind of squash especially when its roasted and brings out the natural caramelization from the squash.
Then you pair that with one of my all time favorite sides for the holidays, STUFFING!
This was extremely easy to make and your guest will be begging you to make this again!
