Oven Roasted Acorn Squash

Shares

You really can’t go wrong with acorn squash since it’s naturally sweet and delicious.  We’ve seen so many acorn squash recipes that call for the addition of brown sugar or maple syrup, but we’ve tried it without, and it doesn’t need any added sweeteners to enhance its flavor.  Our recipe is one the simplest and healthiest ways to eat acorn squash.
