Nice fast tasty fall dish.
1/2 pound of Penne (I used Gluten Free)
1 acorn squash (for about 1/2 pound of penne)
1 large onion sliced
1 tab minced garlic
fresh rosemary to taste (I used about a 5 inch piece from my plant)
fresh basil (I used about a 5 inch piece from my plant)
Cook the pasta---and while cooking
Slice the acorn squash in 1/2 (cut the way you don't have to cut the stem). Put face down on a microwave safe dish and microwave about 8 minutes for an average sized-smallish acorn squash or until tender.
Meanwhile saute with a bit of pam in a non-stick large pan(I use a ceramic type) a large onion--browning it--. Add the garlic and slice up the acorn and add this all to the pan ,discarding the skin. Add the seasonings and some maple syrup and water. Simmer for a few minutes to combine the flavors. Toss with the cooked penne
