Recipe: Apple-Filled Squash

Apple-Filled Squash

1 acorn squash-cut in 4ths, seeds removed
1 Golden Delicious apple-peeled, cored, and sliced
butter (I used spray butter)
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
Dash of ground cloves
Sprinkle of lemon juice

Heat oven to 350 F. Place quarters, skin side up, in a dish and cover; bake 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine apple, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
Turn cut sides of acorn up; spray with butter and top with apple mixture. Cover and bake 30 minutes longer or until apples are tender.

When your acorn squash is ready to eat, top with some Nova Granola. It added a nice flavorful crunch to the softened dish. I used my molasses+raisin+nutmeg granola.
