Parmesan-Roasted Butternut Squash Recipe

There is something so lovely about a simple rustic dish. If you have not worked with Butternut Squash before you really should – it kinda tastes like pumpkin but with a VERY nutty quality which is perfect when roasted with olive oil , some seasoning, and of course Parmesan cheese

This dish is naturally gluten – free

It is the perfect side to any meal – I especially like it paired with Chicken

A 3.5 pound squash like the one is enough for 6 people easily. You should have the rest of the ingredients in your pantry

Do you like fresh grated parmesan cheese or do you use the powder stuff? Growing up we always bought the powdered parmesan cheese from Trader Joes section; however, when I started to buying the freshly grated Parmesan cheese it was almost life changing.

If you never tried the type of parmesan cheese as shown in the picture above please try — it is a little bit more expensive but the taste is so much better!

Here is a close up of the finished product

The outside is crunchy while the inside is smooth and rich – a VERY satisfying side that is NOT deep fried … dare I say somewhat healthy ?
