This Oven Roasted Squash recipe is such a simple yet scrumptious side dish! It’s an easy way to cook squash and brings out so much flavor!
I love those summers when we have a huge bounty of squash from our garden. It’s always a battle between the deer, rabbits, birds and me to see who can enjoy more of the squash. So it’s easy to see why I’m excited when I get to keep the majority of it. I don’t mind sharing just a little of my garden with them. But just a little.
So when I am able to gather a good amount of my summer squash, I love to make so many different recipes with it. One of my favorite quick, simple, easy as pie ways to cook squash is to oven roast it. It’s ready in just a few minutes, doesn’t require a whole lot of effort and it always turns out delicious.
It makes the perfect side dish for just about anything you’re serving for supper in the summertime, too. Pair it with a piece of Grilled Caprese Chicken or a skillet steak or just have it with a nice salad if you are so inclined. I think this squash goes with just about anything.
Here’s how I make it.
