Expert Tips

For a scrumptious side dish full of fall harvest flair, fill the squash with chopped crisp red apples and coarsely chopped toasted walnuts. Just add them to the sauce in the centers of the squash halves. Right before serving, sprinkle chopped crystallized ginger around the edges of the squash for added flavor.
