Food Facts

Since the Granny Smith apples hold their shape when baked, they work well in this recipe. Or, if you have Gala apples, you can use them instead.

    Delicious, a favorite recipe for me and my family in the fall. I count it among my favorite recipes.

    First, please leave PLENTY of time to cook this dinner. The time allowed left our tenderloin RAW in the middle, and the squash was completely mushy. Not even worth the money it took to buy the ingredients. Too bad, because the house smelled lovely when it was cooking in the oven. :( BOOOOOOO!
