Roasted Kabocha


Have you guys tried a Kabocha Squash? It’s like a cross between a sweet potato and a pumpkin which equals delicious! I picked mine up from trader joes and loosely followed the recipe on the sticker to come up with this recipe. It is more starchy than a traditional squash so it gives an interesting texture and the flavor is amazing. Next time you see one of these you should pick one up at the store!

The bacon with the lemon zest and the balsamic takes this dish over the top!
