Sweet Baked Delicata Squash

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"Delicata squash is one of the best winter squashes even though it is a fairly 'new' squash. The skin can be eaten and it is almost the best part of the squash. I was curious about the squash when I saw it at the farmer market and 'had to have it' and this is how I chose to make it. Kids and adults love it!"

super tasty. Instead of adding water like others say to avoid paste consistency, I used 3 tbsp melted butter in the mix and stirred it on low on the stove top. I didn't like the idea of ginger, ...
