Instead of wasting cooking energy in a stove, simply cut your butternut squash in half. I use an electric knife since they can be tough to cut, and placed them into my large slow cooker (crockpot). You may or may not scoop out the seeds first if you wish.

I added some water (1/4 cup), set it on low and went about my day. By the time I checked again (5 hours later) it was done! I scraped out the now soft inners and added butter and a little cinnamon. Next time I will cube some to add to stir fries, sauces, burritos and other dishes.

Couldn't be more simple and I didn't have to heat up my house and oven.
