Roasted acorn squash with orange-ginger dressing
Smartpoints value per serving
Here's a terrific side dish to any fall meal. And since each squash half is a serving, it’s easy portion control, too. Plus, it couldn't be any easier to make, and most of the cook time is hands-off. While you let the acorn squash bake away in the oven, make a simple sauce that features fresh orange juice, chopped ginger, butter, brown sugar, and grated orange zest. It's sweet, savory, and citrusy, and nicely complements the roasted squash. Pour the dressing into the hollowed-out halves of the squash, or you can also scoop out and mash the squash with the dressing and serve it like mashed potatoes, if you so desire.
