Making squash in the crock pot is very easy!
Wash your squash (I love butternut) prick all over with a fork or knife. Put it in your crock pot, cover and cook on low. If the squash is too tall for your pot just exchange the lid for foil instead. Lift out carefully, slice in half remove the seeds and scoop out the flesh. Season with salt, pepper, butter, and a bit of brown sugar.
This is also great if you're having company and your oven is already full with other things. Enjoy.
