      I've never had acorn squash before, so I was a little hesitant. However, this recipe really makes it good...even my husband enjoyed it. I wanted a starchy dish that was not mashed potato. I think that calories wise, they are similar. My husband did think that panko crumbs on top during the broiling stage would've added to the dish. I microwaved the squash for 1 min initially to soften it up a bit before removing the seeds. I also set the oven for 400, so it only took 35 min to bake.

      I don't think I cut it up enough before adding the butter and cheese. I would make it again and try to do that better. It was pretty good.
