Rosemary Roasted Delicata Squash

Rosemary Roasted Delicata Squash

The flavor of this roasted delicata squash is luxurious and flavorful, without the need to mask or enhance it with sugars or sauces.

A touch of olive oil and a dusting of chopped, fresh rosemary impart a fragrant aroma and allow the natural sweetness of the squash to shine.

Serve it with any lean protein, on winter greens, or as a simple side dish for Thanksgiving — or any meal.

If you’ve never cooked delicata squash before, you’re in for a treat – it is one of the easiest winter squashes to work with.

As its name suggests, this mild winter squash has a delicate skin that doesn’t require peeling and can even be eaten.

Similar in flavor to butternut squash or acorn squash, delicata squash has a creamier texture, which is why many prefer it to its more famous cousins. Try substituting delicata squash in your favorite winter recipes.
