Stuffed Acorn Squash with Cauliflower

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Cauliflower

This acorn squash with cauliflower is maybe the most fall dish in the history of time. I love changing food with the season. Just as we rotate outfits and hair, we need to rotate dishes and this dish meets every expectation for fall - warm, earthy flavors, with beautiful colors.  This recipe also really pushed my experience with cauliflower. When I was little I hated cauliflower, so I've tended to stay away from it. As much as I wanted to love mashed cauliflower and other cauliflower dishes, I just hadn't quite figured out how to flavor it. With this though, I did, and it's something I keep coming back to.
