Caramelized Acorn Squash

This is truly my favorite way to use up acorn squash…Even if you can’t remember the exact amounts of ingredients, just toss the squash with melted butter, brown sugar, pinch of salt and pop it in the oven at 400 degrees F.  Thanks to my sister who introduced me to this recipe, now I can officially abandon my search for the “perfect” acorn squash recipe.  Yippee!
