Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Microwave squash 5 minutes on a paper-towel-lined plate; when cool enough to handle, halve lengthwise, then scoop out and discard seeds. Cut squash crosswise into 1-inchthick slices. Arrange squash slices on prepared baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.

Combine brown sugar, Dijon, coarse-ground mustard, and butter; spoon over squash slices. Bake squash until fork-tender, about 20 minutes.
