Spiced Butternut Squash with Apple Cider

1/4 - 1/3 cup apple cider
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray (optional)
1/8 - 1/4 cup brown sugar or brown sugar substitute
Ground ginger, cinnamon and coriander to taste

Cut peeled and seeded squash into about 1-inch pieces. Steam in a basket steamer until tender. arragne squash in a casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Pour apple cider over and toss very gently. Spray with butter spray if desired, sprinkle with brown sugar and spices. Can sit until ready to bake. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
