Mashed Maple Squash

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/mashed_maple_squash.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2007

Acorn squash makes a sweet substitute for potatoes in this easy mash. Use a serrated grapefruit spoon to get all the seeds and stringy fibers out of the inside of the squash.

2 servings, 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/4 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place squash halves cut-side down in the prepared pan. Bake until soft, about 50 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Scrape the soft squash flesh into a medium bowl. Stir in syrup, butter, cinnamon and salt with a fork, mashing the squash until somewhat smooth.
