Roasted Honey Sage Squash & Apples

A holiday harvest of acorn squash and apples roasted and glazed with olive oil, honey, and fresh sage. This time of year I seek out comfort foods that I can create a healthy version. A great addition to the holiday table as the featured (local) side dish. Acorn squash is packed with vitamin C, B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, and fiber. Acorn squash does take some time to cook in the oven, so give yourself ample time.
