Butternut squash has a sweet, intense flavour and, when roasted with bright yellow corn kernels, makes a glorious vegetable treat for autumn and winter. It is particularly good with roast chicken.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Bake the vegetables in an attractive oven-to-table baking dish for simplicity of serving and to save on washing-up. * For an unusual pasta dish, bake the vegetables as above, then stir them into a bottled tomato sauce and heat through. Toss with hot cooked pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan. * To serve as a vegetarian main course, accompany with wholegrain bread, baked tomatoes and a green salad.
Very yummy and easy. I use whichever cheese I have on hand. - 02 Nov 2011
