This stuffed butternut squash is filling, nutritious and full of the goodness of fall.

How inspiring is that list of fall ingredients?
I was actually so inspired by this list of ingredients that I created two recipes, but I’m just sharing one with you today and the next will come in a few weeks as a member of a virtual Thanksgiving potluck. Brussels sprouts are the star of that upcoming recipe and I couldn’t stop eating it. I can’t wait to share.
For this recipe, I used butternut squash, red quinoa, kale, and scallions. And I threw some bacon and extra sharp white cheddar cheese in for good measure. This is ultimate comfort food, you guys. And it’s really quite simple to make! You roast the squash, scoop out the insides, mix the cooked squash with all the other goodies, refill it, and then bake it a little longer! It is perfect as a main dish but would also be great as a side dish on Thanksgiving.

Chang’s facebook page and the grand prize winner gets trip for two to Napa Valley for two nights including a chef’s dinner where two of the contest judges will be cooking up some of their favorites.

Still not feeling inspired? Stop in to your neighborhood P.F. Chang’s to try some of the items on their fall menu. I’m most excited about the Apple Cider Martini, the Shanghai Waldorf Salad, the Apple Dessert Wontons, and the Miso Chicken. I’m sure you’ll leave not only full of great food, but also completely inspired to create a fall masterpeice.
