Baked Butternut Squash

1 Butternut squash
Sucanat or brown sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the squash in half, separating the narrow top section from the wide lower section. Then slice each section in half, lengthwise. Lay them face down in a glass baking dish and pour in enough water for about 1/4 inch deep. Cover with foil or glass dish lid and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, turn the pieces face up, dab with butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sucanat (or brown sugar). Leave uncovered and return to oven for another 10-15 minutes. The squash is done when the peel looks more transparent and a fork easily pierces through the center.
