We got three acorn squash from the CSA this week. Here’s how I made use of one of them. I’m throwing this into my Thanksgiving dinner recipe arsenal. If you get these from a farm, be sure to not only rinse them off, but use a vegetable scrubber to get in the ribs as dirt tends to build up there. While minerals are an important part of dietary health, I don’t recommend eating them as the ideal method of intake. Either way, rinse these well!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice acorn squash as shown below. Be careful and use a sharp knife, the rind can be tough. Coast both sides with olive oil and S&P.

Roast for about an hour, turning half way through. Then serve with your favorite pesto, store or home-made.
