We get a lot of squash from our CSA.  I bet we get 4 to 5 every week once they come into season.  That's not a problem, though.  We like squash, and they are very simple to cook, and fast if you use your microwave.

Here's the recipe that I use almost all the time:

  1. Cut squash in half and remove the seeds.
  2. Place squash in roasting dish, cut side down.
  3. Place in microwave and nuke it for about ten minutes.
  4. Poke it with a knife to see if it's done, giving it a couple more minutes if necessary.
  5. Fluff the flesh with a fork and add butter, salt, and pepper to taste.
That's it.  Very simple and quick.
