1 acorn squash, about 1 1/2 pounds


  1. To cook squash in the microwave, cut squash in 1/2, scoop out the seeds as if you were cleaning cantaloupe only it will be a little harder. Lay cut side down on a piece of microwave safe plastic wrap placed directly on microwave bottom or plate. Cook on high in 5 minute intervals until completely softened and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes for 1/2 an acorn squash. Cook times will vary depending upon the size and variety of your squash.
