Roasted Acorn Squash Recipe

Roasted Acorn Squash is a delicious way to eat fresh acorn squash. Brush sliced acorn squash with olive oil, herbs, and spices before roasting in a hot oven. Shredded Parmesan cheese adds a salty savory flavor.


  • 1 large Acorn squash, outside scrubbed clean
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, stripped from stems or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. degrees.
  2. Wash the outside of the acorn squash under cold running water.
  3. With a sharp knife carefully cut the acorn squash in half vertically.
  4. Using a metal tablespoon scrape the fibers and seeds from the cavity of the acorn squash.
  5. Use the sharp knife to slice each half of the acorn squash into 1 inch thick slices.
  6. Arrange the acorn squash slices on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
  7. In a small mixing bowl mix the olive oil, chopped garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper.
  8. Using a basting brush, brush the olive oil and spices over both sides of the sliced acorn squash.
  9. Sprinkle the top of each acorn squash slice with the shredded cheese.
  10. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and roast for 20 to 25 minutes or until the squash is fork tender and the cheese has melted.
