Hazelnut & Honey Roasted Squash

 Hazelnut & Honey Roasted Squash
I enjoy both winter squash and nuts and combined them to make this tasty variation on baked acorn squash. I added apples to give it an extra level of flavor. It will go well with most hearty entrees.—Gloria Bradley, Naperville, Illinois
