Butternut squash, along with other winter squash, are tasty when baked in the oven and seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, or brown sugar and a little butter. After cutting the squash in half lengthwise, scoop away the inner seeds (much like scooping away the innermost part of a cantaloupe). Then place in shallow roasting pan, and rub a little olive oil over top of squash. Add enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes until tender and lightly browned.
