Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Roasted Summer Squash

25 July 2013

Roasted Summer Squash

Summer squash has been bountiful in our CSA box the last 3 weeks.  I'm thrilled.  Let's just say, Drew is not as thrilled, but if it's "appropriately seasoned", then he's happy.  One day, I roasted it, and the next week sautéed.  I prefer it roasted, but with the high temps the last 10 days, I haven't made it this way.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

While the oven is warming, wash and cut summer squash and onions into bite sized pieces. 

Place the vegetables in a bowl.  Toss with olive oil.  Add a pinch of sea salt and garlic powder and Italian seasoning to taste.

Put squash and onion mixture in a shallow pan.

Roast in oven for 45-60 minutes.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve warm or cold with dinner.

This is a delicious way to eat summer squash, and it's one of the few ways my husband tolerates eating. 

How do you like to eat your summer squash?


  1. I absolutely love summer squash, I usually just have them with roasted onions. I never tried it with parm though

  2. Always looking for new recipes for summer squash! Thank you!

  3. I love squash, mostly we grill it. I think I'll try roasting it next time. Thanks for the idea.

  4. squash with parmesan cheese this is something I want to try

  5. Sounds good to me!

    Here's what I like to do:
    Single layer of sliced Roma's, zukes, and yellow squash lined overlapped and lined up nicely in a baking dish. Sprinkle with seasonings, drizzle with olive oil, top with a bit of grated parmesan cheese and bread crumbs too if you like. Bake until done through and browning.


  6. I want to try the roasted in the microwave method on squash and other veggies. It works great on potatoes! So do the baked and mashed.
