Acorn Squash with Walnuts & Cranberries Recipe.

Here’s a new and delicious way to get your squash fix: instead of stuffing it with sausage or other meats, try a big pile of hearty walnuts and tart cranberries. The nuts give the whole dish a great texture, and the cranberries add little bursts of sweet-tart flavor in every bite: it’s perfect if you typically think of winter squash as bland or flavorless.
