Delectable side dish - Orange-Glazed Acorn Squash

Last night we had a scrumptious dinner, Roasted Spicy Chicken on the charcoal Weber grill, Brown Rice Pilaf and I tried a new recipe for Acorn Squash. It was so delicious, I thought I'd share it. A perfect and easy side dish for Thanksgiving too!

Orange-Glazed Acorn Squash
(recipe & photography compliments of the Cooking Light cookbook, 2000)
Prep: 15 minutes - Cook: 50 minutes

3 acorn squash (about 1lb. each)
cooking spray
1/4 c. orange marmalade (We love a brand from Trader Joes that comes in a white jar.)
1 T. brown sugar
1 T. lime juice
2 t. low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 t. vegetable oil
1/4 salt
dash of black pepper

Preheat oven to 400.

Cut off ends of squash and discard. Cut squash crosswise into 12-3/4" slices, discarding pulp and seeds. Arrange squash slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. (I lined my cookie sheet with non-stick foil too. It much easier for clean-up later on.) Bake squash at 400 for 15 minutes.

Combine marmalade and remaining 6 ingredients. Brush half of marmalade mixture over squash slices. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Brush with remaining marmalade mixture; bake an additional 15 minutes.

Yield: 4 servings - serving size: 3 slices
