Number of Servings: 4


    2 pound acorn squash, about 1 large
    1 Tbsp reduced-calorie margarine
    1/2 cup apple juice or cider
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


Trim ends off unpeeled squash, cut in half, and remove and discard seeds and fibers. Slice each half into four 1/2-inch-thick slices.

Melt margarine in a large nonstick skillet. Add apple juice and cinnamon; mix well. Add squash and bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn squash slices over, cover and simmer until squash is tender, about 10 minutes more. Yields 2 pieces squash per serving. (Note: Do not eat skin.)
