I love squash, and this one is delicious. I saved the seeds and toasted them, yummy. I actually didn't add the brown sugar or spices, but just crushed a clove of garlic and threw it into the hollow of the squash while it was baking. I do this with spaghetti squash too. Sometimes I prefer the savory to the sweet.
