I hate it when I'm absent-minded. Earlier this week, I put together my grocery list, on it was butternut squash. I've never prepared it myself, but I love butternut squash ravioli. I have a recipe that calls for it, so I figured I'd give it a whirl.
Tuesday I did my grocery shopping and picked up "butternut squash" and crossed it off my list. It wasn't until last night I realized I bought acorn squash, not butternut. What a dope I am. I have no clue what to do with this acorn squash. I'm not even sure I like it. I recall my grandma making it when I was a child, but I didn't like any veggies she made - it was all mush.
The directions on the sticker say to bake it with butter and brown sugar. That seems to be the most popular preparation, I've searched recipes and the majority are some variation of that. Since we're watching fat and calories. I don't really want to go the soaked in butter route. Plus, I generally prefer savory to sweet so I'm not sure I'd dig the brown sugar and/or cinnamon, nutmeg combo.
I did find two possible recipes from cooking light: Winter Vegetable Soup and Maple-Roasted Acorn Squash. So, it's likely I'll go with one of those. Unless someone has another suggestion...
