Pierce the butternut squash with a sharp knife several times. Place on a plate and microwave on high for 5 minutes, or until just soft enough to peel and cut into. Peel the squash. Cut into 1/4 inch round slices, discarding any seeds.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon and salt.
Place the squash on a single layer on the baking sheet, drizzle the 1/2 butter over the top.
Sprinkle 1/2 of the sugar mixture over the squash.
Flip the squash and drizzle the other half of the butter and sugar mixture over the top.
