Stuffed Acorn Squash

This recipe is incredibly versatile.  This is kind of a get-rid-of-all-of-the-vegetables-in-the-fridge recipe, so all ingredients are interchangeable.  Even potatoes can be added if so desired!  It’s simple, easy, and delicious.  That’s all you need.  Let me know what you think!
