I love creating dishes with few ingredients and easy steps, like squash with Brussels sprouts. Maple syrup adds a slight sweetness, and pecans give it a toasty crunch. —Angela LeMoine, Howell, New Jersey

  • 1 medium acorn squash
  • 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-3/4 cups pecan halves
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Cut squash lengthwise into quarters; remove and discard seeds. Cut each quarter crosswise into 1/2-in. slices; discard ends. Trim and halve Brussels sprouts.
  2. Place squash and Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Transfer to 2 foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Roast 30-35 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, in a dry large skillet, toast pecans over medium-low heat 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Add syrup and butter; cook and stir until butter is melted.
  4. Sprinkle vegetables with pecan mixture; gently toss to combine.
