I tried this recipe before and gave it 4 stars. This time I made a few slight changes and WOW what a difference!! You can easily microwave the squash, place skin side down on large plate(prick skin first all over) heat for about 15-20 minutes til tender, I sprinkled with salt and pepper too. Then do NOT use marg..please do yourself a favour and use REAL butter!! Also a tiny pinch of brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon (shhh) it's the secret ingredient!! Add a good dose of REAL butter again just before serving and a little S & P too. This got rave reviews for my Canadian Thanksgiving dinner and I've been craving it ever since!

This is a 5 with my modifications, which were minimal. I baked the squash (I used one long heavy one) cut side down in a 1/4 inch of water, at 375 degrees, for a LONG TIME. When the skin is burning, the squash is done. This brings out the flavor and mellows out the texture of winter squash. I scooped it out and added 2-3 TB of butter and about 2/3 cup sour cream. No salt or pepper - instead a heatlhy sprinkling of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice (about a pinch of each?). Blended well with a hand-mixer. This was FABULOUS.

I have a recipe that is similer, but very different. First instead of bakinf it with water, bake cut side up with just enough water to keep it from burning and cook a much shorter time(you want it soft but firm). Cut the sour cream in half and add a couple of tablespoons of brown sugarand some cinnamon. Because of the sugar and cinnamon the kids will love it and by not cooking it so long you will have a better texture.
