We ate this until we bursting, then when I was cleaning the table, I took a couple more bites!! It is an excellent acorn squash recipe. I added just a dash of dried cloves to the spice mix. I baked this covered until the final 15 minutes, then I uncovered it and let it crisp up a little. I recommend this recipe to all who love squash, I will also try it with butternut.
