This is a quick and super easy side that will go well with most anything. Plus, it's pretty. Bonus points!

Step 1: Ingredients!

I've made roasted squash before and never thought to eat the skin. I liked it very much. My hubbie, not so much. Thanks for the suggestion. Now, he can take the skin off if he likes and I don't have to go through the trouble of doing it :)

Oh, one more thing. You can keep the seeds and toast them just like you do pumpkin seeds. They're delisious.

This sounds like a really nice way to make something with the 4 Acorn sqaush I have. Thanks:)

This looks yummy. I think I'd like to try it using Delicata squash.
I'll let you know. Thanks. :~)
Yummy! I usually just cut them in half and add some cinnamon and butter in the center :-) This would be nice to try a more savory version. I too eat the skin now, it is really good and soft after baking.
