Roasted Acorn Squash

Acorn squash is a favorite of mine. I've stuffed them with a rice mixture and baked them, I've steamed them and I've roasted them - all are great ways to cook them. Roasting them with apple cider vinegar and a little olive oil brings out a sweet quality and almost makes it taste like a dessert.
Roasted Acorn Squash 

The Stuff:
1 acorn squash cut into 1/4 inch size rings, scrape out seeds
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1.5 teaspoons olive oil
salt and pepper

The How To:
Preheat oven to 400
Coat a large cookie sheet with olive oil and apple cider vinegar
Lay out the acorn squash rings in a single layer on the sheet
Sprinkle with salt and pepper
Bake for 10 minutes and flip, cook an additional 10-15 minutes, checking every 5 minutes
To eat, remove the rind, it should peel off easily

Weight Watcher Friends: 1/2 the squash equals 1 pt
