There is nothing so delicious as sweet acorn squash. I never add anything but some olive oil when I cook it. And, that is easy too. Just wash, halve, remove the seeks, and drizzle with olive oil then microwave for 12 min. Now, I have an old microwave and mine does take a good twelve minutes. But newer models probably less time. When the time up, I like to slice the squash thickly and scoop out some to put in the center of the sliced sections, you can also drizzle a mix of olive oil along with balsamic vinegar and dried herbs on the plate as this makes for a grand presentation.
That's it. All is good!
