Garlic Parmesan Roasted Butternut Squash

I made this recipe as a side dish for a birthday lunch for my Dad. Growing up, my family ate a lot of squash. However, my older sister was a picky eater as a kid and she had never tried squash until I made this. She loved it and wanted the recipe so she could make it for her family.  I bought another squash the next day to make it again, that’s how good it is.

After I roasted the squash, I tossed it in some parmesan cheese. This helped kicked the flavor up another notch. This recipe was so simple and quick to throw together. I love that on top of being delicious, it is also healthy.  It would make a great addition to any meal.

Until next time,

Happy Eating!
