Pizza Acorn Squash

This recipe is easy and cheesy! I love acorn squash, or squash in general and who doesn't love fresh melted Mozzarella cheese?


1 large acorn squash, cut in half and seeded
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1/2 c. Hunt's Pasta Sauce, Garlic & Herb
20 mini Hormel pepperoni
2 tsp. grated Parmesan (plus more after baked)
1/2 c. fresh Mozzarella

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place both squash halves in an 8x8 baking sheet so that they do not slide around. Fill each cavity with 1/4 cup pasta sauce. Sprinkle each with 10 mini pepperoni, and 1 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese. Bake for 40 minutes. Top with the fresh Mozzarella and bake for another 20 minutes. When they are cooked, sprinkle with a small amount of Parmesan. If the Mozzarella isn't golden enough for you, cook under broil for 3 minutes.

This recipe is fairly low in Weight Watchers Points Plus points, especially since one serving size is an entire half of a large acorn squash. Each half is 9 PP. As you can see in the picture below, it was very good....
