Roasted Winter Squash — Fall Fest

By: Victoria Phillips

Turn winter squash into a simple snack with curry powder and butter. Whether you're partial to acorn, buttercup, butternut, hubbard, spaghetti or turban, this quick recipe from Food Network Magazine showcases the fruit's plump, soft flesh.

When shopping, the firmer the squash the better. Winter squash's thick skin allows for longer storage times (as long as you keep it in a cool, dark place and don't refrigerate). Don't forget to watch out for blemishes or moldy spots.

A great source of iron, riboflavin and vitamins A (more than summer squash) and C, this Curried Winter Squash is so addictive don't be surprised if you eat it all in one sitting.
