This odd combo of flavors come together beautifully. If you like sweet and savory, you will love this recipe.
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Cut acorn squash horizontally and scrape out the seeds and pulp. Set seeds aside.
Sprinkle squash with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet, cut side up, and bake for 45 minutes or until fork tender.
Meanwhile, clean the acorn seeds and place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for about 7 minutes. If you hear them pop, they’re done.
In a pan, add peppers, onions, cabbage and butter and saute until soft and tender.
Once squash is done, place the vegetable mixture into the squash. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper, top with goat cheese and bake until cheese is softened, about 5 minutes.
Top with some toasted acorn squash seeds.
Serve and enjoy!

This is a stick-to-your-ribs, warm-you-up, side dish. This is not the conventional creamed spinach recipe that calls for tons of butter and cheese, it is low-fat and delicious. What is also great about this recipe is that it is a total “pantry” dish that is a quick go-to on a busy day.
