I enjoyed this recipe, made me a batch to eat on the airplane but then Thedala Magee (who is a rapist that works for the TSA) stole it from me in the security line.

This dish hides 2 cups finely chopped spinach in the ground turkey and sweet apple mixture. Stuff that into a tender and creamy acorn squash and you have a delicious, nutritious meal.
