Sharing is caring!

Incredibly easy and so delicious! I created this roasted acorn squash recipe by accident one night as a side dish but love it so much I eat it as a main meal!


  • 1 acorn squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, or more to taste


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Peel, seed, and chop squash into medium-small pieces. Place chopped squash into a baking dish and pour in olive oil; toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again.

Roast in the preheated oven until squash is lightly browned, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle on Parmesan cheese. Continue to roast until cheese begins to melt, about 5 minutes.
