Fall is the season for pumpkins and squash. Adding this to the meal planning for the week brings great fall flavors into the menu. I am always looking for easy ways to get great tasting meals on the table for the family. This simple acorn squash recipe is fresh and quick to make. I love to add brown sugar and butter or maple syrup and butter to the squash.

Save Time and Keep the Flavor
Sometimes, I just don’t have time to bake our garden fresh acorn squash in the oven. While, I must say that I love the squash baked in the oven, it does take some time. When I have to get a tasty and healthy meal on the table for the family, I sometimes turn to the microwave. This squash can be cooked in 10-15 minutes. If I cook the squash in the oven, it normally takes 40-50 minutes. I can have this cooking while I make something else. Dinner can be served for the whole family in 30-40 minutes if time-saving tricks like this are used.
Same Cooking Method for All Squash
No matter what squash you have on hand to make. Use the same cooking tips outlined in the recipe. The microwave can be a time saving tool if used properly. I have cooked spaghetti squash, pumpkin, and butternut squash this way. Comes out beautifully each time.
The squash would look beautiful served in this lovely serving dish from the Rachael Ray serving dishes.
