How do you microwave butternut squash?

Take an ice pic and make several small holes in the squash before putting it into the microwave. This will allow the steam to escape and not have the squash explode. Put the squash into the microwave and turn on for 10 minutes. Check the squash periodically with a fork until it is tender. Cooking time will depend on the size of the squash. When it is tender remove the squash, cut it open, discard the seeds, scrape the meat from the skin into a bowl. Add seasoning as desired.
