Roasted Acorn Squash

This is a super easy vegan and paleo recipe. A seasoned olive oil rub on the acorn squash rings and roasted on the oven and you’re done. The roasted squash is soft and almost creamy. Eat it as is or with some pasta or top it up for a hearty sandwich on some sourdough bread. @sarchakra
