Use Your Oven: To cook the squash in the oven instead of the
microwave, place unfilled squash halves, cut sides down, in
13x9-inch baking pan filled with 1/2 inch water. Bake at 375°F
for 40 to 50 minutes or until squash is tender. Scoop squash
from the shells and continue as directed.
Tip: Acorn squash are a popular variety of hard-skinned squash.
Choose squash that are heavy for their size. The rinds should
be hard, deep-colored and free of spots. Store in a cool, dark,
well-ventilated place for up to 1 month.
