The other day my husband came home and told me he had this delicious squash at school and requested that I make some for dinner one night so tonight was the night. I never had acorn squash before so I wasn’t too sure how they were going to come out but to my suprise I really liked them. After spending about 10 minutes trying to slice him open I was ready to bake these guys.

This recipe comes from Skinny taste


-1 acorn squash- cut in half, seeds and fibers removed

-1 tablespoon light butter

-2 tbsp brown sugar (to taste)

-dash of ground cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Rub 1/2 tbsp light butter on each side. Top with brown sugar and cinnamon.

2. Place in a baking dish and add 1/4 cup water to the bottom of the pan. Cover and bake 50 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes.

3. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving
