    Thanks for posting this, I had no idea I could microwave it. I used a golden acorn squash and just put a pat of butter and a little sea salt. It was good. - 9/19/09

  • Pretty good. It would probably have been better if I'd used the brown sugar instead of Splenda, but I'm cooking for a diabetic. I did add cayenne pepper which gave it a nice zing. - 2/4/18
