Colorful mashed potatoes

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 70 minutes

1 one-and-a-half–pound acorn squash
1/2 pound carrots
1 eight-ounce russet potato
3 cups water
2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard seeds and any stringy flesh. Place on a baking sheet (cut side up or down) and cook for about 1 hour until flesh is fork-tender. While squash is cooking, peel carrots and trim ends. Cut into pieces no longer than 2 inches. Peel potato, then cut into pieces that are about the same size as the carrot pieces. In a small saucepan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil over high heat and add carrot and potato pieces. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook until tender, about 15–20 minutes; drain well. When squash is done, leave oven on. Using a metal spoon or fork, carefully scoop hot squash flesh into a food processor. Add drained carrot and potato pieces, along with margarine, salt, and pepper. Blend until well combined; mixture will be thick. Spray a small casserole with nonstick cooking spray, then spoon mixture evenly into dish. Place casserole in oven to bake for 10 minutes before serving.
