    Yellow Squash is an easy vegetable to work with and is great for a lot of different recipes, but it’s great to slice up and throw in the oven to bake. That’s what makes this Parmesan Crusted Yellow Squash Recipe so great.

    Just cut into thin slices, bake until the squash is soft, then top with Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. I used seasoned Italian breadcrumbs, but you can also use panko.

    PRO TIP: Use parchment paper for a quick clean up!

    Parmesan cheese can also be switched out for another type of cheese, however only Parmesan really bakes up nice and crisp. It wouldn’t be parmesan crusted yellow squash without the parmesan now would it?

    Crispy Summer Squash is a great new way to cook squash. Baked and topped with parmesan cheese and bread crumbs, it is sure to be your new favorite side dish.

    You can eat this easy recipe as a side dish with chicken, steak, seafood, or whatever you choose. You can even chop it up and throw it into some pasta if you want.

    However you choose to eat it I’m sure you’ll love it! I hope you enjoy this recipe and the rest of your summer!

    Tools for making Parmesan Crusted Yellow Squash:

    Rimmed Baking Sheet– another kitchen staple! You’ll use this for prep work, roasting and much more. I have 7 at my house.

    Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

    Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!

    Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil– A good olive oil will taste like, well, olives, while a poorly made one will taste like vegetable oil. Gross. While people tend to favor Italian and Greek olive oils, I prefer to buy mine domestically.

    There are some great ones out there from all over the world, but the reporting of ingredients isn’t always the same and you could find that your super expensive olive oil was actually cut with vegetable oil.
