    Make many holes in the squash with a sharp knife, then wrap loosely in micrwaveable plastic wrap, check on at 8 mins by poking with a fork, if it's squishy enough, take out to cool. That way it won't explode. I've never had one explode. Also, microwaves differ greatly in wattage!!

    It was okay but needed some spices and extra flavor added to it.

    As is, a little bland, but not a bad base recipe. Next time I will probably add some creole seasoning to boost the flavor a little. Roasted mine in the oven as I had several other things to roast as well. Not sure if the microwave would affect the flavor any.
