Want to make something a little special for dinner? Try these gorgeous stuffed squashes: They’re hearty and satisfying, and just beautiful on the plate. The recipe calls for golden nugget squash, but that variety can be hard to find year-round; acorn squash makes a good substitute. For a dinner party, double the recipe, and get a head start: The day before, cook the squash, and fill with stuffing. Bring to room temperature the next day, and bake as directed. You may find these filling enough to be your entire dinner, but they’re also great with a spinach salad tossed with apple or pear slices.
