Winter squash becomes tender and sweeter when roasted — a delicious side for a holiday dinner. Look for interesting squash like kabocha or hubbard at your farmers market and try them in this recipe.


  • 5 pounds winter squash (such as butternut, buttercup, kabocha or hubbard), peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks (see Tip)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Toss the squash with 4 teaspoons oil, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread evenly on a large baking sheet. Roast, stirring occasionally, until tender throughout and lightly browned, 30 to 45 minutes (depending on the variety of squash).

Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant but not brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Toss the roasted squash with the garlic and parsley. Taste, adjust the seasoning and serve.

Tip: Make Ahead: Cut squash up to 1 day ahead; store airtight in the refrigerator.<br><br>Recipe adapted from Alice Waters.
