Baked Delicata Squash

Tossed with cream and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, this beautiful side also from The Glorious Vegetables of Italy enhances the sweet flavor of autumn squash.

2 Delicata squash, halved, seeded and cut in half crosswise to yield 4 total pieces
¼ cup heavy cream
¼ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Pinch grated nutmeg
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Arrange the pieces of squash, cut-side up, on a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle cream over squash pieces and use a pastry brush to spread evenly around. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle each piece with a little nutmeg and then a sprinkle of the Parmigiano.

3. Bake squash for 30-40 minutes, basting once or twice during cooking. The squash is done when cream is thickened and lightly browned, and flesh is tender. Transfer to platter and serve immediately.
