  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a large baking dish with aluminum foil.
  2. Generously spread the softened butter over the flesh of the squash; lie in the prepared baking dish with the cut sides facing down.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Flip the squash and put about half the butter and about half the brown sugar in each of the cavities of the squash halves. Return to the oven until the outer shell is soft, about 10 minutes more. Spoon the flesh of the squash into a bowl to serve.

VERY tasty. I took it easier on the sugar than the recipe calls for and it's still delish. Great side dish.

One of my family's favorite meals by far (we eat a ton of pasta so this is a great alternative). I also printed and gave this recipe to my toddler's school teacher and they're making it this fal...

I made this with dinner last night and it was pretty good. I added some cinnamon to the brown sugar which was a nice extra little kick (and I love how cinnamon smells!), but I think I might have...
