This is by far my favorite way to eat acorn squash. The Parmesan and the thyme, knocks this one out of the park.
The squash has such an amazing savory flavor when you add the cheese, and it looks pretty too.
This is definitely the season to go into "squash overload" mode, as I always do. There are just so many ways to cook squash...just make sure you try this one.
