This squash was great, and I'm not a big squash fan. I agree with several reviews about the handling. Nuke it for 2-3 minutes to make it easier to cut. I also did not cover the bottom half with the top half as suggested, otherwise only one side would have all the flavor. But do keep in mind that if you cut it around the center (versus top to bottom) the top half of the squash is thicker and takes longer to cook. The first time I made it, the bottom half was perfect but the top half was underdone. Second time I made it, I put the top half in 12 minutes earlier than the bottom and it all came out perfectly. I also scored mine (cross hatches with a knife in the flesh) to let the flavors sink in, before adding the butter and sugar...and a pinch of salt, which does add a great flavor. Made this for my Dad and he scraped every last bite down to the skin. Microwaved leftovers 2 days later and still fantastic. Will make again! By the way, look for the recipe for toasting winter squash seeds on this site too. At least as good as pumpkin seeds and such a shame to throw them out!
