Nice easy veggie dish that can be done ahead and reheated in the microwave. This can also be baked in a 400°F oven for 45 minutes instead of microwaved.

I enjoy finding a recipe that has just a few simple ingredients yet tastes so good. This one is a real treasure, Tebo. I loved the maple/ginger flavor. Went very well with the butternut squash. Tasted even better the next day. Thanks for posting this one.

Great "Do Ahead" recipe - I got everything ready in the AM and popped it in the oven 30 minutes before dinner. The ginger/ maple syrup gives the squash a nice flavor .It is not sweet I used an Acorn squash - super Thanks Tebo — posted Oct 27, 2003, Added comments 14 July 04 I made this again with butternut squash -it was a super hot day, no microwave so I peeled, seeded & cubed the squash steamed it until fork tender then followed the recipe. Again did it in the AM, popped it in the toaster oven 25 minutes before dinner -easy & no heat Thanks again Tebo

Nice flavour -- I really liked this. I baked the squash in the oven rather than microwaving it. Very simple to make. The only thing I would change would perhaps to be to use just a little less ginger next time.
