A winter favorite in my family. I'm giving measurement amounts to satisfy website requirements, but I never measure.

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.
Directions See How It's Made
- Cut squashes in half, remove seeds, place in baking dish with 1/2" water and bake cut side down in 350° oven 1 hour (remove sooner if soft).
- Criss-cross cut pulp; sprinkle with salt and pepper, top with parmesan and dot with butter.
- Drain water from baking dish.
- Return squash to oven, face up; broil just long enough to melt butter and lightly brown cheese.
