Squash-Apple Bake

This is my mother-in-law's recipe, but I've made it so often I feel as though it's my own! Squash and apples are representative of New England in the fall, and taste even better when baked together. It's a wonderful Thanksgiving dish. —Judith Hawes, Chelmsford, Massachusetts

    What variety of apple would  pair best with the squash in this recipe? This sounds like an excellent holiday menu idea.
