My recipe is somewhat similar to Mary K.D.'s. This is what I do.
I wash the squash and cut it in half and take out the seeds. Place cut side down in shallow pan containing water. Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Turn cut side up. Place butter or margarine, brown sugar in each half; sprinkle with pepper, basil and parsley. Return to oven for 15 minutes.
This can be used for acorn or butternut squash. Delicious. I could make a meal of just this.
