Simple dishes are the best. Pair this roasted acorn squash with a roasted salmon dish like the Salmon with Caper Mayonnaise and you have the nearly perfect meal.

This recipe can easily be multiplied. The leftovers make a good ingredient in tossed salads.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Halve the squash lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and discard them. Make shallow cuts in a grid pattern along the inside of the squash.
Place 1/2 tsp. butter and 1/2 tsp. brown sugar in the cavity of each squash.
Set the squash cut side up in the preheated oven and reduce the heat to 350°F. Roast for approximately 30 minutes. Using a spoon, occasionally baste the top and inside of the squash with the sugar/butter mixture.
Remove and serve after allowing to cool for about 5 minutes.
