A great way to serve acorn squash, but be sure to make your slices thick or separating the squash from the skin is a pain. It's a lovely side to most any entree. I did not use the parmesan (only thyme, EVOO, S&P) because I felt it would not go well with my fruity chicken dish. I love the addition of fresh thyme. It's a keeper and I will make this again. Thanks Dr. Jenny!
