- Nonstick vegetable oil spray
- 2 acorn squash - (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 lbs ea)
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
- 1 garlic clove minced
- Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line large baking sheet with foil. Spray with nonstick vegetable oil spray. Cut off both ends of each squash. Cut each squash crosswise into 4 rings. Scoop out seeds and discard. Place squash rings in single layer on prepared baking sheet. Cover baking sheet tightly with foil. Bake until squash begins to soften, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk next 5 ingredients in small bowl to blend. Remove foil from squash. Brush half of honey mixture over squash. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake uncovered 10 minutes. Brush remaining honey mixture over squash; continue to bake until squash is brown, tender and glazed, about 10 minutes.
