Roasted Acorn Squash

I’ve never tasted Acorn Squash, until this year.

Acorn Squash with onions

 I don’t know why!

Maybe because, butternut squash has always been my favorite and if I tried Acorn Squash it would feel a little like I was abandoning my beloved butternut squash.  Maybe it because all those different shapes and colors of squash are a bit intimidating.

 I’ve tried Acorn Squash a few different ways this season but, my favorite way of eating it is simple, just roasted with an onion.  It is so tasty I’m sad I’ve been passing it over all these years.


1 Acorn Squash, cut in to chunks

1 Medium Onion, cut in to a large dice

1/2 Teaspoon Salt
