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
