2-3 baking apples (cored and cut into 1/2”/1 cm slices

1/3 cup/75 ml brown sugar

Arrange apple slices on top of squash

Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and sprinkle on top of apples and squash.
Cover and bake until squash is tender (40-50 minutes).

Tips:
Use red-skinned apples, peels on, for an attractive, colourful dish.
To make it easer to slice squash, pierce with a sharp knife a few times and microwave on high for 1 minute.
