  • 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

Preparation time 8mins
Cooking time 36mins


Step 1

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.
