So deliciously sweet and tender, it could double as dessert! Serve this as a side to a savory dish.
Ingredients:
1 acorn squash (about 1 lb)
1 golden delicious apple, peeled, cored and sliced
2 tsp reduced-fat margarine, melted
2 tsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Dash ground cloves
Directions:
1 Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 1-quart baking dish. Halve squash and remove seeds; cut into quarters. Place quarters, skin side up, in dish and cover; bake 30 minutes.
2 Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine apple, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
3 Turn cut sides of acorn squash up; top with apple mixture. Cover and bake 30 minutes longer or until apples are tender.
4 ENJOY!
