Baked Acorn Squash with Pineapple.

Forget brown sugar. Say hello to pineapple to give your squash that extra hint of sweetness. The robust flavor also makes it no sacrifice to cut down on salt as the tart element of pineapple plays with the warm spices for a well-rounded dish.

Ingredients

  • ½ tsp. ginger
  • ½ tsp. allspice
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 acorn squash, halved and seeded

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place each squash half cut side down in a baking dish. Cover and bake until tender (45-60 minutes).
  2. Combine remaining ingredients. When squash is cooked, remove from oven. Let cool until safe to handle (10-15 minutes). Scoop out the pulp from both halves and mash together with the pineapple mixture. Replace mixture into shells and return to the oven and bake until hot and bubbling (7-10 minutes).
