This elegant side dish needs almost no prep. Just pop the squash in the oven, then make the rest of the meal.

SO easy and so delicious. My new go-to for acorn squash, it's completely fool proof

Not sure if I just got a bad squash, but it was still not soft even after 50 min. Had to just take it out since I needed the oven for other dishes. Total waste of product. Definitely try it first before serving to anyone and don't waste money on organic squash. Also it might be a good idea to bake it for a bit under the foil.

I normaly do not care for acorn squash - but this recipe is fantastic. The cheese and cream bake up into a sauce all on its own. It has a nice fresh taste, and a very pleasant texture. I would serve this to company for informal, as well as formal dinners.
