(ok, I know I sound like I'm bragging a lot in this post, but really--this was a damn good meal!! :)
1 sweet dumpling squash (acorn squash will work as well)
1/2 stick butter
1 t. sage
1 TB chopped shallot
1 t. brown sugar
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
2 oz. goat cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel and de-seed the squash. Chop it into uniform pieces--about 1 1/2" cubes.
Melt the butter and mix in the sage, shallot, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Toss with the squash pieces. Place on a baking sheet and roast about 45-50 minutes or until just beginning to brown and crisp along the edges. Toss with crumbled goat cheese just before serving.
