Here's the recipe that I use almost all the time:
- Cut squash in half and remove the seeds.
- Place squash in roasting dish, cut side down.
- Place in microwave and nuke it for about ten minutes.
- Poke it with a knife to see if it's done, giving it a couple more minutes if necessary.
- Fluff the flesh with a fork and add butter, salt, and pepper to taste.
That's it. Very simple and quick.
