ROASTED HONEYNUT SQUASH

My favorite thing about the fall is the variety of squashes that appear everywhere. Have you ever tried a honeynut squash? They look like miniature butternut squashes and are DELICIOUS! Keep your eyes peeled for these little gems! They are sweet, nutty and packed with nutrition!

ingredients

2 medium honeynut squash, halved lengthwise and seeded

4 teaspoons butter

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground pepper

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

4 teaspoons pure maple syrup (optional)

directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Arrange squash halves cut-side up on a baking sheet. Place 1 teaspoon butter in each cavity. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and cinnamon. Roast until tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
