This is an easy vegetable side dish and tastes delicious

I usually always have extra stuffing left over. But not to worry, you can serve the stuffing alongside chicken or turkey for another meal!

How to Make Roasted Winter Squash with Cornbread Stuffing

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut squash into halves lengthwise and discard seeds. Brush the cut sides with 1 tbsp. olive oil and place cut sides down on a baking sheet. Roast 25 minutes or until tender.
  2. Soak dried fruit in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain and discard liquid; set aside.
