Roasted Summer Squash
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Cover a large baking sheet (see Tip) with foil; lightly coat with cooking spray. Set aside. Halve squash lengthwise. Cut the squash into 1/4-inch-thick slices.Advertisement
Toss the squash slices with oil, kosher salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Arrange the slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes or until the slices are tender and golden.
Tip: Use a baking sheet without sides. This allows better air circulation around the squash and promotes more even roasting and browning.
Variation: Flavor Burst Option: Just before serving, toss the roasted squash with 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan.
