Roasted Squash with Brown Butter and Hazelnut Gremolata


Brown butter makes everything better, and this roasted squash dish is no exception.

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds and pulp. Slice them into nice even half-moons/wedges and spread evenly on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Toss generously with olive oil and salt. Roast in the oven for about 30 to 40 minutes depending on the size of the squash pieces. (Be sure to rotate the pan halfway through the cook time for even browning.)

3. While the squash roasts, prepare the gremolata. Start by mincing the garlic, then add the parsley, chopping it right in with the garlic. Add the toasted hazelnuts and roughly chop. Add a pinch of salt, the chili flakes, and the lemon zest and give it another rough chop to combine.

4. Cook the butter in a small saucepan over low heat until just browned but not burned.

5. Transfer the squash to a serving dish, pour over the brown butter, and top it with the gremolata.
