Let me elaborate. FOUR INGREDIENT** roasted delicata squash.

How pretty is this for only four ingredients?

And it’s even more delicious.

Though not a big veggie fan (as you know), I am a big ROASTED veggie fan, and I especially love winter squash served this way. And while I’ve made roasted acorn and butternut squash often over the years, I’ve never used delicata squash. But this article in The Kitchn caught my eye, and as I was working on this mini “sides” series, the timing was perfect!

Guys – I LOVE delicata squash! Not only is it much easier to cut into than its winter counterparts, you don’t need to peel it. This is game changing (in the squash world, anyway – or maybe it’s just in my world), and seriously slashes prep time.

The whole thing came together in under 10 minutes, and roasted, hands-off (with the exception of a half-time flip) in the oven.

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Delicata Squash
from The Kitchn

2 medium delicata squash, trimmed, halved lengthwise and seeds and pulp removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. Slice the squash crosswise into 1/4″ thick slices and place on a baking sheet.

Combine the olive oil and minced garlic in a small bowl and pour over the squash; toss to coat. Spread slices in an even layer and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 25 minutes, flipping slices halfway through. Sprinkle with cheese and roast for another 5 minutes, or till melted. If you like, turn the oven up to broil and continue cooking till deep golden brown, watching carefully to avoid burning. Garnish with parsley leaves; serve immediately.

    Sounds like something I might have to try,hope the leftovers can be reheated without taking away from it

      I would imagine this would re-heat beautifully – winter squash is pretty sturdy. Frankly we devoured all of this so there were no leftovers to re-heat! 🙂

    First found this squash last fall on a trip to a few farms with two if my girlfriends and we just love it. We made sure we went back to the farm a few weeks ago and we have since been enjoying this squash. I made it with Olive oil, salt, pepper and basil and thyme from my garden……they are gobbled up in a matter of minutes……absolutely delicious!!!!!!!
