There to be at least dozens of ways, many of them simple. The simplest?
Probably buttered with a bit of salt and pepper, baked until tender. If
you prefer them sweet, add a bit of brown sugar or honey.

Fill the center with butter, sprinkle with salt & pepper, bake at 350F for
an hour or until fork-tender. One of my favourite squashes!

Thanks everyone_ butter, brown suger and s&p seem to be the concensus.
I'll make a small foil tent to try to keep everything moist.

I stick the whole thing in the microwave for 15 minutes. Cut in half.
Remove seeds. Scoop out pulp and serve.

With a brown sugar version I'd omit the s n' p... instead you may want to add a
little cinnamon, some nuts and raisins too. I like baked winter squash draped
with bacon rashers or filled with crumbled breakfast sausage.

What he said.

I often microwave mine in a covered Corningware dish. Comes out great.

Brush with maple syrup first then like Jill says "Fill the center with
butter, sprinkle with salt & pepper, bake at 350F for an hour or until
fork-tender."

I put it cut side down on a greased baking sheet and bake it for about
45 minutes or an hour (test with a fork to see if it's tender) at 375
or so. I like it just fine with butter, salt & pepper.

I usually cut a cap out of a surface that stays up stably. Scoop out
the seeds, salt and pepper (or Aleppo pepper) the inside surface, and
fill with something.

My most common stuffing is to fill with peeled garlic cloves and half
fill with olive oil. Sometimes I put in a hot pepper, split and
seeded.

Preheat oven to 400F; put halves in baking dish cut side down and bake for
20 min. Remove, turn cut side up, add a pat of butter and fill cavity
nearly full with Dr. Pepper, bake another 20 minutes or until flesh is soft.

Ok everyone_ As far as cooking, the squash has to share the oven with
bigbird... 325degrees is what I will be using Obviously the time in the
oven will be longer. Is the reason some recommend cooking cut side down in
either a water bath or greased sheet to prevent it drying out? As I
mentioned, I would tent them as best as I can in my scenario.

Cut side down is steamed , NOT baked... it's okay squash if you like baby food,
but it ain't baked.
