Roasted Delicata squash topped with a Parmesan-herb crust, I like to leave it in the oven until the edges are crisp, golden and delicious! Acorn squash can be used in place of Delicata.

Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 1 delicata squash (about 14 oz, washed and dried)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment, lightly spray with oil.
  • Slice the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Slice the seeded halves into 1/4-inch thick slices (half circles) and place them in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl combine the parmesan, parsley, thyme and lemon zest.
  • Drizzle the olive oil, garlic, salt and black pepper over the squash slices, tossing toss well to coat.
  • Lay flat on the prepared baking sheets, pour the parmesan mixture over the squash.
  • Bake in the center of the oven until soft and golden brown on the edges, about 25 minutes.
