Okay, I have to admit, I’m definitely a fan of acorn squash that’s cooked with butter and a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon; let’s face it, butter makes just about everything better. Of course, if you’re trying to eat healthy, squash that’s loaded with extra calories might not be your best option. Fortunately, this Parmesan Roasted Acorn Squash is a wonderful alternative to the added calories and fat, and it offers the perfect solution for a healthier way to prepare squash. I made this for my family a while back wondering if they would miss the butter and sugar we usually add, but to my surprise, everyone loved it! It’s actually become our new favorite way to enjoy acorn squash. Honestly, you won’t even miss the butter and sugar, it’s that delicious!
