Squash Apple Bake Recipe

I first tried this side dish at a church putlock when my family lived in Wyoming. It was such a creative side dish, and since I am an adventurous eater, I had to try it. I would have never thought to put squash and apples together! This recipe also works great when you swap out the squash for sweet potatoes too!
