PARMESAN DELICATA SQUASH
I have been meaning to share this Parmesan Delicata Squash recipe with you for some time and it keeps getting pushed to the back burner.
This is a nice fall side dish that doesn’t require a lot of work, which is always something you need to have in your back pocket. When it comes to Delicata squash you don’t have to peel it, which I love! You just wash, dry slice the squash, scoop out the seeds and then cut the squash into half moon slices. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
I love the sweet squash flavor paired with the salty, savory parmesan cheese. I kept the recipe super simple, just using olive oil, salt and pepper and then roasting the squash and topping it with parmesan cheese. You can get more creative if you want and add some spices. I like to sprinkle fresh parsley on the squash at the end and sometimes a little extra parmesan cheese, because you can never have enough cheese, right?
Parmesan Delicata Squash also would make a really wonderful holiday dish. I could see this on the table next to your turkey, gouda smashed potatoes, green beans and a brussels sprout salad. One o my favorite things about fall is all of the squash varieties there are. It is fun to get creative and try new things with it. A few of my favorite ways to use squash include this Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Apple Soup and this Butternut Squash Apple Bake. Both are perfect ways to use butternut squash. If you like acorn squash, try this Mexican Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe.
Delicata Squash was new to me this year. I have seen it year after year but never actually bought it and cooked with it. I am excited to broaden my horizons and try other flavors and spices paired with this delicious, easy little squash.
