Quick and tasty! I used brown sugar as well, and I was happy for it.

It's the best! I think it goes best with BrownSugar though, so that's what I used. Thanks for posting this recipe! My friend made this at her house a few weeks ago but I couldn't remember how long she microwaved it for.

Excellent and fast! My mom made this when I was growing up but she cooked the acorn squash in the oven so it took longer.
