  • 7 cups thick-sliced yellow squash (about 1/4 inch to 1 cm in thickness) (from 6-7 medium-size yellow squash)
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp Italian herb seasoning
  • tsp cayenne pepper (OPTIONAL)


  • Preheat oven to 450° F 
  • Trim the stem end of the squash and cut them into round slices with equal thickness so they cook evenly. Use paper towels to absorb some excess water from the yellow squash to prevent a mushy texture after cooking.
  • Transfer to a large bowl, and season with oil, Italian herbs, cayenne pepper, parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • Transfer the mixture to a shallow baking dish. Cook, uncovered, for about 20-25 minutes.
