Hey, you know I am all about a good shortcut. This recipe is so easy, even my kids can make it. Just slice your squash into coins. When you think you have enough, cut a few more...they are that good. Toss the squash in a bowl with some olive oil and a little bit of garlic salt. Just stir them around to coat. Then spread them out on a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with some freshly grated parmesan cheese. Pop these in the oven at 425 degrees F for about 10 - 15 minutes.
I almost hate to post a recipe this easy, but these are oh so good! Serve them with a little bowl of sour cream dip. The recipe is below. It is also super simple to whip up and perfect for with these squash chips. The entire snack (or appetizer) is healthy, low carb, and kid approved. Trust me, I had to make a second batch for myself because the kids took the first one.
