Step 4: BAKE THE SQUASH
Place the baking dish on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 40 to 90 minutes. Your cooking time will vary depending on the size of the squash.
To test for doneness, insert a fork into the squash. If the meat pulls easily away from the skin, it's ready to go. It's better to bake it longer to prevent the squash from being “crunchy” or underdone.
