This recipe is soo yummy!! Seriously the best fall recipe I've ever made. I've never made anything with acorn squash and now like it much more than spaghetti squash! Great texture and the spice mixture is amazing. 😍

This was my first time cooking acorn squash! I usually make spaghetti squash with ground turkey, so this was a nice switch. The cheese mixed in with the panko was delicious! I'm usually a picky eater so I was hesitant about the cherries at first, but they were a nice addition. I bet this dish is also good with dried apricots. I'm so glad to have found a new weeknight meal!

Really good weeknight meal! I love the breadcrumbs, gives it a nice crunchy topping. I love it as much as I enjoy the zucchini or stuffed squash boats.
