  • Place squash, cut sides down, in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour water into dish around squash halves.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tender and easily pierced with a fork, about 1 1/2 hours. Carefully remove the skin with a fork; it should be very easy to remove. Top squash halves with butter and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook's Note:

It takes about 1 1/2 hours to cook a large squash. Adjust the baking time for a smaller squash.
