Pecans are festive and delicious in the stuffing, but walnuts are cheaper and more available, and will work just as well.

It’s important to use a squash with lots of flavor and fairly dry dense flesh for this recipe. Pumpkin is too watery, and butternut squash has a small cavity.
To save prep and cook time on the day you plan to serve the squash, prepare the stuffing and cook the squash the day before. If the squash and stuffing are both chilled, add another 10 – 15 minutes to the baking time.
