1 cup chopped tart cooking apples (peelings may be left on if desired)
¼ cup brown sugar, packed
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. chopped pecans
1 medium acorn squash, halved and seeded

Fill each squash half with half of the apple mixture. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave on high for about 20 minutes or until squash is soft. Sprinkle with pecans before serving.
