Once when I was shopping, I spotted acorn squash and already had a pint of pure maple syrup in my cart. I was immediately inspired. This is the perfect side dish for roast turkey at Thanksgiving, or even a simple roast chicken on a weeknight.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove and discard the seeds and membrane. Cut each half widthwise into ½-inch slices and discared the ends. Place the squash slices in a large baking dish in a single layer. Season with season. Combine the maple syrup and butter and drizzle over the squash. Roast in the oven until cooked through and slightly golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes.
