2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds. Place each half, cut side down, in baking dish. Cover dish and bake for 45 to 60 minutes until squash is soft and tender.

Meanwhile, combine the cinnamon, pineapple, nutmeg, allspice and ginger. When squash is cooked, remove from oven. Let it cool for 10 minutes.
