Baked Squash With Mushroom Nut Roast Stuffing

What to cook for that special festive dinner? Its a question I get asked all the time at this time of the year so I’ve created lots of delicious seasonal celebratory recipes. But what to cook for a striking centre piece? I think that roast squash is hard to beat. Here its stuffed with a chestnut nut roast filling and its super tasty. They also look pretty special laid out on a serving dish, I would recommend serving hem with a feast of other veggies. I really hope you enjoy, more delicious festive recipes coming your way. Love, Niki xxx
