Acorn Squash Maple-Cinnamon Wedges

Squash is a sweet, delicate vegetable that’s perfect when served in wedges with a maple twist.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.

2. Use a strong knife to cut the squash in half. Scoop out the seeds and cut into 6 wedges, leaving the skin intact. Place the squash wedges on the baking sheet.

3. Whisk together the maple syrup, brown sugar, olive oil, cinnamon, ginger and salt in a small bowl. Brush over the squash wedges. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the squash is tender. Garnish with parsley and serve.
