    1. Place squash cut side-up on a microwave-safe serving dish. Spread butter into the hollows of the squash. Fill halfway with maple syrup. Microwave until fork-tender, 10 to 15 minutes.


    You can use pure maple syrup or brown sugar instead of syrup. Just add about 1 teaspoon or more, depending on your taste.
