Carnival Squash

Have you ever seen this funky looking guy in your grocery store? Well I always thought this was one of those "just for decoration" fall time items. I did not know they were full of such yumminess! If you like acorn squash then you will LOVE this! There are several ways to make it but I tried this way first....

1 carnival squash
1 t olive oil
1/4 cup water
1 t butter
salt and pepper to taste


Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the squash right down the middle. Clean out the seeds with a spoon and discard. In an oven-proof dish add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and spread around so it covers the bottom of dish. Place the squash flesh side down in dish, add 1/4 cup water. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven add the butter, salt and pepper and serve.
It's so pretty!

Such an interesting veggie...

Does not look so appetizing here, smells just like a pumpkin

Cut side down and bake for 30 minutes

 Yum, you can eat it right out of the skin.

Really is very similar to acorn squash, highly recommend it!

Weight Watcher Friends: This serves two and has 1 point per serving.
