Roasting fall squash is one of the easiest and most delicious recipes! This dish is perfect to make on a weeknight or for a special occasion. Fall squash like acorn, delicata, butternut, and honeynut are tossed with extra virgin olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon and roasted until tender. A tasty side dish!
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven.
- In a large bowl, add the squash wedges. Drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil and toss to thoroughly coat the squash.
- Sprinkle the squash with the kosher salt, pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. Toss to coat the squash with the seasonings.
- Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven. Spread the squash wedges in a single layer on the sheet. Return it to the oven.
- Roast the squash for 25 to 30 minutes flipping once half way through the time. The squash should be fork tender and golden brown.
- Remove the squash from the oven, season to taste, and serve.
- Preheat the baking sheet before adding the seasoned squash. This helps to ensure that the squash will not stick to the pan.
- Cut the squash wedges all in about the same size so they will cook at an even rate.
- Flip the squash half way through the roasting time to get a golden brown exterior on each side.
- To make roasted squash ahead of time, follow the recipe and completely cool the squash. Package it in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave on 70 percent power for 1 – 2 minutes. Continue microwaving at 30 second intervals until heated through. Taste and season with kosher salt and pepper and serve.
