If you'd like to bake this savory bread pudding
as the pork roasts, plan on removing it before
raising the oven temperature to 425 degrees for
the pork's last 8 to 10 minutes, and set it aside
while the meat is resting. Then return it to the
375-degree oven with the Brussels sprouts for
10 minutes to ensure a crisp, golden-brown top.
Making homemade pasta may seem arduous, but this dish is worth the extra work. The sheets, which are layered between the sage and butternut squash filling, encompass the lasagna once it's assembled. Look for amaretti cookies in Italian markets. They add a sweet note to the otherwise savory dish.
If you can, order your turkey from a local farm, and ask for it to be boned with the skin on. The wing and leg bones should be removed, and the turkey tenders should be included. Make sure you have the wing tips, neck, and giblets for the gravy. Rolling the turkey ensures that each slice will include both light and dark meat.
Follow the recipe for Roast Turkey to cook the stuffing in the turkey cavity, or bake it separately as directed below. If you prefer to avoid peeling the chestnuts yourself, buy ones that have been cooked and peeled and are sold in jars or cans. You will need 1 1/4 cups.
