Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF
  2. Peel the squash, and cut it into cubes.
  3. Add the olive oil, fresh thyme, garlic, and Meyer lemon zest and juice to a large bowl, and mix together to blend.
  4. Add the squash cubes to the seasonings and oil, and toss to coat thoroughly on all sides. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Drizzle a little oil on a baking sheet, and place the squash cubes on it, flat sides down.
  6. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes. It should be starting to brown, and very fragrant.
  7. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and return to the oven for another 5 minutes or so, just until melted.
  8. Garnish with parsley, and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes
