The pumpkin in this dish becomes almost molten. Barely held together by the flour it's been dredged in. Simply delicious!
- 8 cups pumpkin or 8 cups butternut squash, cut into 1 inch chunks
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crumbled dried basil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Butter a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
- Dredge pumpkin or butternut squash in a bag with flour, crumbled basil, salt and pepper; shake off excess.
- Put in the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with Parmesan and garlic; add more pepper to taste and drizzle with oil.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes.
I picked this recipe in dare!, and had it chosen, cooked, eaten and reviewed in 3 hours. That's because it's a simple recipe made with common (for our house) ingredients, but the taste was fantastic. I had 1kg of pumpkin which looked about half the 8 cups Evelyn asked for. It was a very generous serve for 4 people along with roasted potatoes, steamed veg and a roast shoulder of pork. We eat a lot of roasted pumpkin, but this recipe made it special.
This is easier than I thought. The taste is pretty good. I microwaved the whole squash to soften it up and make peeling easier. It did not take long to bake. The dredging does make the taste a lot better. Thank you
Excellent. The ingredient list looked too simple to have this much flavor but I'm very glad I took a chance on this recipe.
I increased the basil and reduced the olive oil. The flour dredging makes a big difference to the flavor and texture (I used a ziploc bag to 'shake' the pieces with whole wheat flour). I also threw in a sweet potato.
Thank you, this will be on my regular dinner rotation.
