Acorn Squash

Pin It Acorn Squash

Roasted Acorn Squash with cinnamon
I love autumn and cooking with squash while they are in season. This roasted acorn squash is simple to prepare and goes great with chicken, pork and veggies. Acorn Squash is a little less sweeter than Butternut Squash and on my half, I sprinkled Ground Cinnamon all over just before serving. I love the taste and smell of squash and it is good for you too. You can leave out the cinnamon or sprinkle a little brown sugar before baking if you want it sweeter.
