*In the bottom of the pan, Add about a 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch of water.

Add more water if it evaporates too much.

Bake in a 375° preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Stick a fork in the squash to check for tenderness and doneness.

Remove from oven when done and allow to sit for 20 or 30 minutes
or until cool enough to safely handle.spegsqua8Carefully remove squash halves from baking dish
