Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut squash in half lengthwise (from stem to end). Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff in the center of each squash half. Score the insides of each half several times with a sharp knife.
Salt and pepper in the hollow scoop of each squash half. Place a bacon half in the hollow of of each squash.
Place each squash half, with bacon, in a large baking pan, cut side up. Add about approximately 1/4-inch of water to the bottom of the baking pan so that the skins don't burn and the squash does not get dried out.
Bake approximately 1 hour or until tender when flesh is poked with a fork. Remove from oven.
Makes 2 Servings.
* Easily found in supermarkets. As the name suggests, this winter squash is small and round shaped like an acorn.
