Ingredients

  • 2

    (1 1/2-pound) acorn squash

  • 1/4

    cup Parmesan cheese, grated

  • 1/4

    cup dry breadcrumbs

  • 1/4

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 3

    tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with sides with foil. Cut each squash in half and scoop out seeds and strings with a spoon. Cut each squash half lengthwise into 4 wedges. On a plate, toss cheese, breadcrumbs, and cayenne until blended. Brush cut sides of squash wedges with butter, then dip into cheese mixture, just to coat cut sides. Arrange, cut-side down, on prepared baking sheet. Roast 14 minutes; turn wedges to other side. Roast 14 minutes longer, or until squash is tender and lightly golden brown.
