Baked Butternut Squash

Don't mind the weird picture, you get the idea.
This is such an easy way to do the butternut squash.
1 butternut squash (mine happened to be very big so it required more cooking time then usual--it was about 5 pounds!)
Maple syrup
Pineapple tidbits and juice (optional)
Cut the squash in 1/2. Remove seeds. Cover baking pan with foil. Drizzle the butternut with maple syrup and cinnamon. Bake at 350 for 49- to 65 minutes depending on the size. It should be nice and tender when you insert spoon. Scoop out the pulp and mash (or better yet puree in a food processor). Add more spice or syrup as you desire. We like this pureed with pineapple tidbits and the seasonings (tastes almost like pumpkin pie)
