Winter Squash is so healthy and there are a variety of ways to make it. I loved roasting this squash and then topping it with a combination of sweet and salty items.
serves 4 ( 4 points +)
- 2 medium acorn squash, halved and seeded
- 3 T. dried cranberries
- 2 T. slivered almonds
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tsp. butter
- 1 tsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place squash, cut side down on a baking sheet. Bake 45 minutes or until very tender.
Place cranberries in a microwave safe dish, cover with water and microwave 1 minute. Drain water.
Melt butter in a saucepan until lightly browned. Stir in olive oil.
Sprinkle squash with salt and pepper, top with plumped cranberries and almonds, drizzle with butter mixture.
