For this easy roasted side dish recipe, pick apples that hold their shape when cooked--Pink Lady, Braeburn and Winesap are good choices. If you can't find acorn squash, substitute butternut instead.

Even though the apples and squash were the same thickness the apples were mush and the squash barely done. I think i would just cut in half and roast like I normally do and add the pepitas and cherries as this wasn't worth the effort. Read More
