Gluten Free... Acorn Squash Delight!



1 Kabocha Squash
1 Tbsp. Sofrito
1 tsp. Fresh crushed garlic
1 tsp. Olive oil
Salt
Pepper

Season:
Cut the squash in half and remove seeds.  Mix sofrito, garlic, and olive oil in a small bowl, adding salt and pepper to taste.  Rub mixture onto the flesh of both halves of the squash.  Cover squash halves and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours to allow the seasoning mixture to marinate thoroughly.

Cook:
Remove the squash from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes, while the oven preheats to 350 degrees.  Roast the squash uncovered for 30 minutes, or until fork tender.

Enjoy:
Serve as is or sprinkle Parmesan cheese. For a hardier meal add grilled chicken or  whatever your heart desires, and enjoy!
