I was looking for a good recipe to use acorn squash and decided on this recipe. It's excellent! Pealing and cutting the acorn squash is tough, so I might use a different squash next time, but overall, it's excellent. The first time, I served it as a side to a pork loin. Next time, I will be making this as a side dish to our Christmas ham.
