Baked Acorn Squash

  I LOVE acorn squash and can't wait for fall when it's super cheap. The way to cook it to make is amazing, is to bake it. Slice it up, scoop out the seeds, drizzle with a bunch of olive oil, and douse with salt and freshly ground pepper.I drizzle oil on the pan and on top of the squash so they don't dry out.

 
 Mmmm, innards.
 
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 min. Just test with a knife occasionally, and when it's soft and the knife easily slides through the flesh, it's done. Let the squash cool for 10 minutes. You'll burn your hands if you handle it too soon (I know from stupid past experience!). Scrape out the squash into a bowl and enjoy! I sometimes add a couple tablespoons of real butter and mix it all up to make it taste even better!
