Roasted Squash and Parmesan


This Roasted Squash and Parmesan recipe is super easy to make because rather than roasting it in the oven, it cooks in 5 minutes in the microwave! Every Mardi Gras, I like to gather some friends at my home and cook a big meal for them. One of the dishes I love to make is this simple squash bake. 

I start by slicing a variety of veggies such as green zucchini, yellow squash and red onion. I layer these in a microwave safe dish and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. When I am ready to cook this, I simply heat it in the microwave for 5-7 minutes. I find this dish can work as a main dish or as a side dish to complement the rest of my Mardi Gras feast. 

To make my Roasted Squash and Parmesan, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Roasted Squash and Parmesan


Arrange squash and zucchini in a dish


Lay one-third of the squash and zucchini slices in a deep, microwave-safe dish. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.




Repeat the layers with the remaining vegetables. Sprinkle cheese on top and cover the dish.




Cook in the microwave for 5-7 minutes until the squash is cooked.



Leave to cool for a minimum of 5 minutes before serving.

This Roasted Squash and Parmesan recipe is a brilliant one to make for a crowd - simply prepare it in advance and cook just before serving. Try it out for Mardi Gras this year and come back to leave your thoughts below.

A great appetizer!! 10/10 going to make this a lot more often before meals so the family will shut their trap about being hungry while I'm cooking lol.

Damn I love zucchini and that alone was enough to make me try this, needless to say it turned out great!

Marlowe Georgatos

Pretty good, I liked it though I think I'll be sticking with the fluffy butternut squash instead.

One cup of parmesan cheese? You're in the wrong neighborhood, I showered it with cheese and on top of that made some cheesy garlic bread on the side too haha.

Low on calories and tastes so good,exactly what I was looking for in a recipe.

Selina Kollath

Not a rookie recipe at all I messed up on this twice, maybe I'm just unlucky..any recommendations on how to NOT burn the damn squash?

Violeta Vakili

Made it for dinner and it's gone now, huge crowd pleaser for sure so I'm saving it.

Whitley Mcraney

You can really play around with the textures, like you can make the cuttings thicker and the taste will be slightly different.


You make it in the microwave what?..I had no idea you could cook like that, I'm learning so much new things from this website.
