    Jane Doh's Note:

    Acorn squash is naturally low calorie and very healthy. I wanted to make it for lunch but all the recipes I found included butter, margarine, and sugars. Special thanks to Dancer who's recipe I used as the foundation for this one.

      Looking for some alternative ways to cook good but light. This is very good - a great side that feels like we were cheating as it felt like a dessert. Thanks!
