Delicata Squash

A couple of weeks ago, my husband had this incredible idea to go for a walk to the fresh produce market.

The fall season is in full swing so I thought that was an exceptional idea! So we put on our sweaters and head out.

The place was full of all sorts of pumpkins and in-season vegetables. I came across this striped squash that I had never seen before. My husband suggested we buy it and create a recipe out of it, and so we did!

The delicata squash also known as a sweet potato squash, is a type of winter squash. It has a subtly sweet flavor that resembles a sweet potato. When cooked, the interior turns into creamy goodness with soft flesh.

Yep! I am ready to get into this recipe!

A Few Notes…


Use two baking sheets instead. If you overcrowd the pans, the slices will not cook properly, but rather become mushier. Assure that there is plenty of space between each slice!


No need to toss those squash seeds! They are 100% edible and incredibly nutritious. Space them out on a different baking sheet and roast them on the middle rack for 15 minutes at 325 F.
