Acorn Squash Rings

I am always looking for delicious and nutritious snacks, but often it is just so easy to grab something packaged when you can easily make great snacks. I wanted to start eating more vegetable for snacks so recently I have started roasting acorn squash rings and then eating them as snacks throughout the week. These only takes a few minutes of prep time and about 20-25 minutes of cooking time, which can be done one night of the week and then separated into bags for a quick grab n go snack! They are so tasty and now I don't go a week without making them!
* acorn squash
* olive oil spray
* salt
* cinnamon
* pumpkin pie spice

1. Preheat oven to 400. 
2. Cut squash in half crosswise.
3. Remove seeds with a spoon.
4. Slice squash into rings.
5. Arrange slices on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until squash is tender.
