You’ve had a long day. You deserve to kick your legs up and let the squash do the work. Be sure to select the freshest, most vibrant squash from this week’s farmers market and get it in the kitchen ASAP.
Turn the oven on to 425. While it preheats, cut the squash down the middle lengthwise. Take your time to evenly slice half moon pieces ¼” thick. Even slices means uniform flavor and texture. This size manages to sop-up enough oil to enhance the flavor while still crisping up in the hot oven, avoiding soggy bites. Place the slices in a bowl with enough olive oil to cover. Season with salt and plenty of fresh-cracked black pepper. Add lots of chopped garlic (minced will burn) and get to mixing! Bake for 8 minutes and check for tenderness. Then crank the broiler up to high to get that satisfying crispy finish. Keep a close eye on them, because they’ll go from delectable to burnt real quick! Serve topped with fresh lemon juice.
