Incredibly easy and so delicious! I created this roasted acorn squash recipe by accident one night as a side dish but love it so much I eat it as a main meal!

12.14.20 This recipe is described as “incredibly easy,” but peeling an acorn squash with all of those ridges is not incredibly easy. There will never be another acorn squash peeled in this house, unless somebody can tell me how to do it more easily! We really liked how this turned out, but in the future, I’ll substitute butternut squash (that I can peel fairly easily). It did turn out a bit overcooked/mushy, so in the future, I’ll check for doneness at 35 minutes instead of 40. Very tasty, and once the peeling is complete, it is indeed very easy, too. Read More

This was quite a tasty and satisfying dish. I added a sprinkling of rosemary and I think it would have been lovely to add some diced onion while the squash roasted. The recipe would certainly benefit from instructions on how best to peel a raw acorn squash. Read More
