Cooked with apples, sausage, cinnamon and maple syrup, these squash wedges delight all the senses.

Ingredients

1
acorn squash (1 to 1 1/2 lb)
1
large apple, cut into 4 wedges, cored
1
package (11 to 12 oz) fully cooked pork sausage links
1/4
cup water
1/2
cup maple-flavored syrup
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Wash squash; pierce several times with fork. Place squash on microwavable paper towel in microwave oven. Microwave on High 3 minutes. Let stand in microwave oven about 5 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, cut four 18x18-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil.
  • 3 Remove squash from microwave. Cut in half; scoop out and discard seeds. Cut each half into 2 wedges. Place 1 squash wedge in center of each sheet of foil. Top each with 1 apple wedge and about 3 pork sausage links.
  • 4 Bring up foil around squash wedges, forming bowl shape. Pour 1 tablespoon water around each squash; pour 2 tablespoons syrup over each sausage-apple-squash combination. Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon over each. Bring corners and sides of foil together; press tightly above sausage to seal.
  • 5 Place foil packets, seam side up, in oven; bake 35 to 40 minutes or until squash and apple are tender. Open packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Spoon hot syrup in packets over sausage, apple and squash.
Tips  

Microwaving the squash for a short time before cutting it into quarters makes it easier to cut through the hard, thick skin.
