1 acorn squash, washed under cold water, halved lengthwise, seeds scraped out and discarded, and cut into either ¾ inch thick slices or wedges

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons light brown sugar

¼ cup maple syrup, warmed

salt and pepper to taste

fried sage leaves for garnish (optional)

 


 

1. Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 400*,

2. Place squash pieces on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss gently. Sprinkle the tops of the squash with brown sugar.

3. Roast squash for 25 minutes, occasionally stirring gently to prevent sticking. Seven to 10 minutes before roasting is complete, brush a small amount of maple syrup over each piece of squash.

4. Top with fried sage, if using, and serve warm.
