Simple Squash

Not all of my recipes are complicated, take this squash, it can be done in 10 minutes or less and it is delicious! I always have some type of squash at home to use as a last minute veggie, they last a lot longer than most vegetables. One of my favorite food combinations is sweet & savory and this squash is exactly that.

1 small squash (choose your favorite, acorn or butternut squash are both good choices.)
2 TBSP brown sugar
olive oil
salt & pepper to taste

1. Cut the squash in half and take out the seeds
2. Prick with a fork or knife a few times throughout
3. Place in a microwave safe bowl with 1/2 cup water on the bottom, cover
4. Cook on high for 4 minutes
5. Remove from microwave, add 1 TBSP brown sugar in each hole and rub flesh with olive oil
6. Salt & Pepper to taste and return to the microwave
7. Cook on high an additional 4 minutes
8. Carefully remove from microwave and spread a small amount of the brown sugar 'syrup' all around

Tip: This is easy to double, just adjust your microwave time
