Cook this tried-and-true Maple-Baked Acorn Squash recipe when you're too busy to meal plan, but want something easy and healthy.

In her e-book series Fresh Pantry, author Amy Pennington introduces readers to fresh seasonal ingredients to help those trying to eat a sustainable, seasonal diet. In Fresh Pantry: Winter Squash, (Skipstone, 2013) Pennington kicks off the 12-month e-book series by featuring original and inspired recipes for winter squash that will liven up your kitchen without boring your palate.

This recipe is a slam dunk. It is so simple, I’m almost embarrassed to include it here, but this tried-and-true dish demands attention. I cook this when I’m too busy to think but I want to eat something easy and healthy. It takes about 3 minutes to prepare and get in the oven, and I can do chores or work while it is baking. I love serving this side with a simply baked fish, but honestly I often eat it right out of the pan while standing up in my kitchen.
