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. (From EatingWell Nov/Dec 2009)
Toss squash with 4 teaspoons oil, salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a large baking sheet. Roast, stirring occationally, 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 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.
