Savory Acorn Squash

Savory Acorn Squash

1 DAIRY AND 1 CARB PER SERVING

Ingredients:

  • ½ small acorn squash

  • 2½ oz fat free cheese, cubed or shredded

  • cinnamon (to taste)

  • black pepper (to taste)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Cut squash in half length-ways and scoop out the seeds. Cover 2nd half in plastic wrap and save for another recipe.

  3. Put the squash cut side down on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

  4. Place in the oven for approx 30-40 minutes or until the squash is soft.

  5. Remove from the oven and turn (Careful, it will be hot); if it doesn't sit flat on the cookie sheet, you may need to trim enough off the bottom so it does.

  6. Fill the cavity with 2½ oz cheese & sprinkle with pepper and cinnamon.

  7. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

  8. Remove from the oven and let cool for approx 5-10 minutes.

  9. You may either eat out of the shell or, using a large spoon, scoop the squash and cheese out.
