Winter squashes tend to have a hard exterior and an interior that softens when roasted. I created a simple vegetarian stuffing to bake inside the sweet dumpling squash. You can sauté any vegetables of your choosing together to create a stuffing.  I used Bok Choy, eggplant and mushrooms with fresh herbs to stuff the squash and baked at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until soft. (The time varies depending upon how dense is the squash.)

I melted cheese on top the squash in the last few minutes of baking because cheese truly makes everything more delicious!
