But how do you cook it?
Most people I know do the traditional method of cutting the squash in half and baking it. It's an excellent method, but a bit more time consuming than I traditionally prefer. Let me show you the cheater's method...
First, pierce the squash with a fork several times.
Put it in the microwave for 20 minutes. After every 5 minutes, give it a quarter turn (so it's not resting on the same side during the entire cooking time). You'll know it's done when it's squishy to the touch.
Remove it from the microwave and cut it in half. Let it cool for a few minutes.
Take a spoon and gently scrape out the seeds in the middle.
Then, scrape out the "noodles"!
