I admit. I was never a big fan of squash until recently. I think the problem with so many squash recipes is that people make them sweet. And yuck. That is just gross.
However, add a little oil, garlic, and cheese…wahlah! you’ve got yourself a dang tasty treat. And (depending on how much oil and cheese you add) a pretty healthy one too.
Another thing I like about this dish is the color. Call me crazy, but I love it when my plate is bursting with different colors, that might be one of the reasons I like having a green salad with most dinners.
A third thing I like about this dish is how easy it is to make. Cut the squash and garlic, toss with oil, sprinkle cheese…that’s about it. Easy peasy, right?
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 medium butternut squash, cubed into bite size pieces
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
In a medium bowl mix olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add squash and toss until coated.
Put squash in a baking dish and roast, uncovered, for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, roast another 10-15 minutes until squash is tender.
Serve and enjoy!
