This recipe brings back all the childhood nostalgia, cosying up inside as the evenings got darker.

For a more sophisticated yet equally comforting autumn dish, Alex’s Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Pecans, Squash, and Blue Cheese Traybake is a must-try.

It's a dish that’s easy to prepare and perfect to serve if you have guests. Pop this dish in the centre of your table and let everyone tuck in—that's the beauty of tray-bakes!
