Roasted Parmesan Acorn Squash

Roasted Parmesan Acorn Squash

I absolutely LOVE squash because it’s so versatile and easy to prepare. The possibilities are endless, really – but here’s one of my favorite ways to cook acorn squash! I give you, roasted parmesan acorn squash 😉


  • 1 medium-sized acorn squash
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1/2 C shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • Pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut squash in half, length wise, then cut into 1-inch slices. Make sure to scoop out the seeds and insides.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together parmesan cheese, garlic powder and pepper.
  4. On a lightly sprayed baking sheet, lay the squash evenly throughout the baking sheet. Spray the squash with olive oil spray.
  5. Evenly sprinkle garlic-parmesan mixture over acorn slices. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and tender.
