cut it open (I like the short way, then into quarters), then seed, then peel, then cut into cubes and steam or bake (drizzled with olive oil).

You can cut in in half the long way, scrape out the seeds, and roast the halves face down on a greased baking sheet in a 375 oven--about 45 min to an hour. When they're tender, you can stuff the centers with anything you like--I like chunky applesauce drizzled with pure maple syrup. If you don't want to stuff, you can just drizzle them with anything you want--olive oil, maple syrup, butter, cinnamon. I love squash this way--I do acorn squash like this frequently. :)

For a quick meal after work, I just stab it a few times with a fork, then stick it in the microwave until it's soft. When it's cooked, I cut it open and discard the seeds etc in the the middle. With my microwave, it takes about 5 minutes per pound. Then I drizzle it with olive oil+honey or stuff it with applesauce or with ground beef+tomatoes.

I cut it in half, scoop seeds out, salt/pepper, add ghee or toasted sesame oil to the insides and outside rims, then put in cake pan that I've lined with parchment paper. If you put a little water UNDER the parchment paper, it makes sure to keep the squash from getting dry and starchy. Also, I cover the whole mess with foil. Then when it comes out, I add more ghee (if I used ghee) and then a bit-of-maple syrup. Yummmmmeeeeee.
