Oven Baked Zuccurì

The simplest way to enjoy this new type of chestnut Kabocha squash, and it's moist yet flaky texture. Consider it your new sweet that is sugar and gluten free.


  1. Preheat the oven to 390 F. Cut Zuccurì into 4 wedges and scrape off the pulp.
  2. Then slice each wedge at an angle. (You will have 8 pieces of Zuccurì in the end)
  3. Heat a frying pan over medium high heat. Lightly coat Zuccurì with olive oil and heat them until the surface is slightly brown.
  4. Place Zuccurì on a baking tray and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and rosemary. Bake for 25-30 min (350-390 F)
