Directions:
Cut squash in half and remove seeds and stringy fibers. Pierce the skin in several places and place in a microwave-safe baking dish or bowl with cut sides down or facing the sides of the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, leaving a small opening along the edge to allow steam to escape.

Cook in the microwave on high for 10 to 20 minutes. Pierce with a fork to check for doneness. Cook longer if necessary.

When squash is done in the microwave, place the halves cut side up on a large baking sheet. Drizzle the glaze mixture over the edges and in the cavity of the squash halves. Place the squash under the broiler for 5 to 7 minutes until the glaze has caramelized. If necessary, cut into smaller serving sizes and serve while hot.
