Ye, although you might want to make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm this as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Nutrisystem guys because they can give you an answer better...
If you are eating it, this is the response I got from Mary Gregg, the NutriSystem dietitian, regarding squash servings:.
Question: What are the serving sizes of butternut and acorn squash?.
Answer: cup of cooked butternut or acorn squash can be used as 2 vegetable servings..
Thanks for emailing..
I cut in half, scoop out and bake in the oven but I use brown sugar (splenda), pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon and ICBINB spray. I like it sweet kind of like pumpkin..
I've wondered the same thingwhen you say cook in the ovenwhat temp and how long generally. I'm somewhat challenged in the cooking area...
I cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, put a dollop of make believe butter in the middle, sprinkle some cinnamon, and microwave until tender. You could use nutmeg and/or some vanilla. It's great...
I put honey in mine when I bake it..cover and bake until tender....
I don't see that on my list of Nutrisystem foods. Sounds great though...
350 degrees for about 45 min. That's cut in half, cleaned out and turned upside down in about an inch or two of water. Just keep poking them with a fork and see if they're soft..
Oh yeah, the last 15 minutes or so, I flip them over, spray with butter and sprinkle splenda and cinnamon on them. If I have it, I use the splenda brown sugar and sprinkle cinnamon. I could eat the whole entire acorn. It tastes like pumpkin pie..
If you're wanting it more for a vegetable, I still spray butter but leave off the sweet stuff..
Try it. They're cheap. You'll love em..
LOL and you won't see it in the planner but 1 tsp is about 20 calories so that would be a freebie or a fat...
Ohhh baby, that sounds good. lol! I don't think it would have occurred to me to put splenda and cinnamon on it. Very cool! THANKS! I'll pick one up this weekend..
One more questiondoes it save well? So I can cook it and eat it over the next few days without wasting any?..
I just love all the squash!! I try to always have the spagetti ones on hand and last night I also bought some acorn. I thought about cooking it and stuffing it. I'm not sure with what just yet, but they are really so easy to work with and so yummy!! I don't go the sweet route with mine though. I hope you have fun playing with all you can do with them!!..
MMmmmm Acorn squash! Just remember NSers... like Pam said...1/2 cup is your allotment. I just got one too..
I've also seen it baked just until semi-soft, then sliced into rings or slices and grilled..
Chris... maybe stuffed with MSF sausage pattie crumbled and some SF maple syrup? It's sweetness keeps me from making it like a spaghetti squash or summer squash...
Ooohstuffing it sounds good too, Christina! I love all your recipes, so definitely post if you figure out a stuffed acorn squash recipe! I'll keep it basic for my first try. :-) I like the grilling idea, too. I can't believe i've never eaten an acorn squash beforeit seems so versatile!.
Now I'm hungry...
I like to salt and pepper the empty cavity and fill completely with slices of sweet onions, such as Vidalia. Turn upside down on foil and bake at 375 degrees until fork tender...about 45 minutes plus. The onions carmelize and give the squash a sweet taste. Can also add a dab of brown sugar...
