I was expecting either the sport or the drink. Huh.

Rinse, slice into bite sized pieces, steam until fork tender, add a touch of butter and enjoy.

Or, in other words, what Samp said.

Slice it. Wet with water or water and egg. Dip into salted and peppered flour. Put into frying pan with butter and a little water. Fry until water is gone, squash is tender, and squash starts to get a nice browning to it. I usually turn the heat up real high to get the browning done at the end when the water is gone. Add some butter if needed. Yum!

Put large saute pan on med hi. Slice up the squash and some onion, put some olive oil in the pan, add squash and onion, and add salt, pepper, paprika, and rosemary or oregano. Saute until the onions are clear. Serve immediately.

After 25 minutes at 425
Take out the pizza and eat it
(you'd best eat the whole thing as the squash,
as you will find out,
has complicated plans all its own, none of which see it in your mouth)--As I was saying--
Take the squash out, carefully, and
put it on top of the newspapers you will have laid out, about eight pages deep.
Let it cool, but
watch carefully, in spite of third degree burns covering its entire surface,
and
the grease oozing from every blister and fissure,
and
the somewhat nauseating smell of burnt mozzerella,
when you push it over
there is a soft, pallid underbelly
(as one might expect)
which
should you care to slice into it
I don't know, say, with a table knife or even a soup spoon,
you'll hear the sickening sound
of the dying squash.
At this fatal juncture,
spoon gouged into the viscera,
your other hand clutching a little bottle of sweet paprika,
you've become
in the eye of heaven
just another
vegetarian.

Personally, I've always thought that squash is best cooked (microwave works fine) with butter and brown sugar. At least that is how my mom always prepared butternut squash.

Depends on the squash.

For zucchini or summer squash, this is my favorite recipe. It also works nicely with a bunch of other vegetables (broccoli, asparagus and snow peas are all ones I've tried successfully) and would probably work well with chicken or other mild flavored meats.

For winter squash like butternut squash, I like them roasted with olive oil and salt and pepper or in soup.
