Acorn squash is simply prepared with butter, salt and pepper but the caramelization from being roasted is the secret ingredient.



  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Halve the squash and scoop out and discard the seeds and strings.
  2. Put the squash halves on a baking sheet. Brush with the butter and sprinkle them with the salt and a few grinds of pepper. Roast until they are brown and tender, 50 to 55 minutes.
  3. Transfer the squash to a serving plate and garnish with fresh thyme sprigs if using. Serve warm or at room temperature.
