Roasted Acorn Squash
A delicious, beautiful and easy Fall side dish.
fresh whole acorn squash
extra virgin olive oil
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees
With a sharp knife, slice off a very small portion of each end of the acorn squash. This will help steady the squash and keep it from rolling.
Now stand your squash up and cut the acorn squash in half length wise.
With a large spoon, scoop out the seeds and their casings and discard.
Now slice your acorn halves into 1/2 inch half moon shapes and place on a sheet pan making sure they do not overlap.
Drizzle your acorn squash slices with olive oil and sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper.
Place the sheet pan in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until they can be pierced easily with a fork.
You can place your squash under the broiler after baking to add more golden color if you desire.
