I never met a squash I liked until I got the chance to taste this Roasted Delicata Squash with Parmesan and Herbed Honey. If you are ever asked to bring a side dish for any occasion bring this one. No one else will even think of this, it’s super easy to make and it’s delicious! Serves 4 Total Time: under an hour
The skin of the Delicata Squash is thin, so there is no need to peel it. When roasted, the skin becomes crisp and a nice contrast to the soft flesh.
2 Delicata Squash, cut in half lengthwise, seeded then cut crosswise into 1/2” pieces (See pic)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped
3 oz Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400F
On a baking sheet add your 1/2” pieces of squash. Drizzle on the olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste.
In a small bowl mix the honey and herbs together, then pour on the squash. With your hands (I know, sticky) coat the squash with the Herbed Honey. Spread out the squash on the baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes or until fork-tender and golden brown. Transfer to a serving bowl, top with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately. Yum Yum!
