Cook’s Note: 

  • To soften the skin of the squash, I usually will pierce the skin with a fork or knife. Make sure to make the cuts all over the squash.
  • Place squash on microwave safe dish in microwave oven. Cook on high power about 2 to 4 minutes until knife can cut skin. If it’s large, it may require more microwave cooking time.
  • Let it cool down before you start cutting. The microwave will soften and loosen the skin.
