Recipe Ingredients for Acorn Squash with Apples

642 grams Squash, Winter, Acorn
1 medium (3") Apples
23.62 grams Light Brown Sugar
9.45 grams Shedd's Spread Country Crock Plus Calcium and Vitamins Soft
1 tsp Cinnamon, Ground
1/4 tsp Nutmeg, Ground

Recipe Directions for Acorn Squash with Apples

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the apple, spices and brown sugar. Set aside.

  2. Pierce the squash several times with a sharp knife to let the steam escape during cooking. Microwave on high until tender, about 5 minutes. Turn the squash after 3 minutes to ensure even cooking.

  3. Place the squash on a cutting board and cut in half. Scrape the seeds out of the center of each half and discard the seeds. Fill the hollowed squash with the apple mixture.

  4. Return the squash to the microwave and cook until the apples are softened, about 2 minutes.

  5. Transfer the squash to a serving dish. Top each half with 1 teaspoon margarine and serve immediately.
