Acorn Squash Wedges with Maple-Harissa Glaze

Acorn Squash Wedges with Maple-Harissa Glaze

Winter squash gets a little pizzazz with the addition of the piquant Moroccan chile paste, harissa. Brands can have differing spice intensities; taste before deciding how much to add. For a variation, replace the harissa with a couple of teaspoons minced canned chipotle chiles in adobo and about one teaspoon of the adobo sauce from the can. If the spice paste drips out of the squash cavity, brush it onto the cut sides.
