This simple recipe allows the flavor of the winter squash to come through. It's a snap to prepare, and is oh-so-pretty!

Simple Acorn Squash
1 acorn squash
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Preheat the oven to 425*. Slice the acorn squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Cut it in slices about 1-inch thick.

Line a large flat aluminum pan with foil for easier cleanup. Spread the oil over the foil and then lay the squash down on the oil. Sprinkle the squash slices with half the salt and sugar, and then turn them over and do the same to the other side.

Roast uncovered for 15 minutes and then flip the slices over. Roast for 15 minutes longer. Serve warm or at room temperature. (Make a meal out of it by serving it with plain yogurt and some pita.)
