    Feel free to vary the veggies, depending on what you have in the fridge. Can't remember where I got this; it's delicious in the Fall or for a side for Thanksgiving! (Time does not include cooking rice)

      This is so yummy! A perfect dinner to welcome the fall. I'm vegan so left the cheese off. Didn't have pecans or cranberries so left the cranberries out and used walnuts instead. Still turned out incredibly delicious. Thank you for sharing, will definitely use this whenever winter squash goes on sale! :)
