Winter squash is a wonderful addition to almost any dinner, and Thanksgiving almost demands it.

The thought of making squash used to bum me out. I would fight to get it cut in half, scoop out the seeds, turn up my oven, set the halves in a pan with water to bake for what seemed like forever, and then spend more time than I wanted to clean the pan. Yes, dread was a good word for it. This process actually discouraged me from the yummy that is winter squash. No longer.

There is a super easy way to make winter squash. For someone like me who can often struggle with time, this is my answer.

Wash the outside of the squash. Place squash in a microwave safe dish with lid. Cook for 10 minutes. Using a pot holder, check that the squash is very soft to touch. If not, cook another two minutes check again, repeat until soft. Once soft, let cool a few minutes and use a large knife to cut open for faster cooling. When ready, scoop out seeds and serve. Yummy! Oh, so much easier!
