Roasted Garlic Baby Squash

Roasted Garlic Baby Squash

Found this bag of little organic baby squash at Costco and I couldn’t resist. How cute are these? Beyond being absolutely adorable, these little baby squash are tender, tasty and filling. Oh yeah, and they are also incredibly healthy. Roasted squash is just one of those sides that pairs well with pretty much anything. It has a mild flavor on its own and can easily be seasoned up to fit the flavor of whatever dish your cooking. They also couldn’t be any easier to make. If you spot a bag of these next time your out shopping, grab it! I promise you won’t regret it.

    Like Danielle, I purchased this same product at Costco’s and was puzzling over the best way to prepare. Your recipe was perfect! I included the baby squash in a meal with crock pot roasted chicken and roasted potatoes. Turned out awesome and all went so well together! Just wanted to say thanks for posting this and keep the good veggie recipes coming! :)

    Excellent recipe. I too made the impulse buy at Costco because they are just so cute! I added a minced shallot I had on hand. This was my dinner. Hubby liked it too. Love these baby squashes!

    My wife picked these up and said “These are too cute not to buy! What can we make with them?” A few minutes later in the frozen food Isle I read her the start of this blog post and she laughed out loud. Got home, made them and her and our roommate want to start a new religion based around this recipe. I think they aren’t bad either.

    Hello, my name is Donni, and I am a Costco shopper, too! Found this site on a google search for roasted baby squash. Was trying to cook all the extra veggies in my fridge that I purposefully and with good intentions bought at the beginning of he week, but were now mocking e with their slightly wilted state. After 15 minutes, I threw in some trimmed green beans 9 and a little extra oil. A few minutes later, I threw a couple veggie kabobs on top of the whole shebang, again drizzled olive oil. All was delish and easy!!!

    My husband found the same bag of baby squash while we were shopping at Costco. He grabbed them and said it looked good. I told him I’ve never cooked them before and wasn’t sure what to do with them. He told me I would figure it out and put them in the cart, lol. Came across your page while searching what to do with them. Will have to try it tonight :)
