Sausage and Apple-Stuffed Squash Recipe.

If you want a quick and easy dinner, it’s hard to get better than a stir-fry and some roasted vegetables. But if you add just one more step to combine the two, you can get something that looks really put-together and impressive even though it’s barely any more work. That’s what this recipe basically is: take a very basic stir-fry with sausage and vegetables, and then put it inside some roasted squash to mix the flavors and automatically up the presentation value.
