Roasted Acorns w/Chile-Lime Vinaigrette

When I made this recipe for the first time at the end of squash season, I was beyond excited about. I remember telling my lab-mate about it, and couldn't wait to see them again this fall. Hailing from Gourmet, this is a different take on the sweet squash-- Roasted Acorn Squash with Chile Vinaigrette (why do I always want to spell it 'ia'?? maybe it's the i before e rule...). I think I built it up too much in my head, b/c this time it was good, just didn't knock my socks off. I did like the sweet-spicy thang it's got goin on ;-) Definately a good way to mix things up a bit!


ps- please excuse the tupperware, this batch went in to work for lunch!

I've never done the sweet squash thing. I definitely like the savory/spicy variety and this looks great!

Squash is so cool because it can take on any flavor nicely. You're a healthy eater for a lab tech :)

Sorry that the squash didn't knock your socks off, but it LOOKS beautiful.

I'm just discovering Gourmet magazine... I have a friend who works there who has been trying to get me to read it for a while, but I was afraid that the recipes would be too complicated. They have some great ones!
