How to Make Parmesan Crusted Delicata Squash

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Cut ends of the squash off to create two flat edges. Slice the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Cut into 1/4 inch thick slices (half circles) and place them in a large bowl.
  3. Drizzle the slices with olive oil and sprinkle salt and black pepper, tossing well to coat.
  4. In a bowl combine garlic, parmesan, parsley, thyme and lemon zest.
  5. On a lightly oil-coated baking sheet spread slices in single layer. Pour the parmesan mixture over the squash.
  6. Roast until soft and golden brown, about 25 minutes. Enjoy immediately.
