Roasted Acorn Squash

Ingredients:

  • 1 Acorn Squash
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut acorn squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Spray the squash with nonstick spray, and place upside down on a cookie sheet covered with foil and sprayed with nonstick spray. Sprinkle with Salt and Pepper. Bake for 40 minutes.
  2. Turn acorn squash over with tongs. Score with a knife, and rub butter evenly over both halves. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the acorn squash.
  3. Place back in the oven, and bake for 10 more minutes.
  4. Let cool for about 5 to 10 minutes and then serve. This dish takes a little more time, but is super easy to make, and it really tastes amazing.
