Sausage and Farro Skillet with Mushrooms and Delicata Squash
A quick, one-pan skillet supper with Italian sausage, farro, and vegetables. I like the savory flavor that mushrooms and winter squash lend to this dish, but you could use almost any vegetables here with great results!
Turkey Sausage-Stuffed Delicata Squash
All the flavors of fall are packed into this comforting meal. Serve one half per person as a main entree, or slice into wedges and serve as a side dish. Delicata squash are usually about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds each. If you don't have any leftover rice, feel free to leave it out or replace with any cooked grain.
Vegetarian Pizza with Pesto and Delicata Squash
I have also used butternut squash in the past for this pizza. It looks really pretty with the green pesto and the orange squash, and my whole family loves it.
Roasted Delicata Squash
You don't have to peel delicata squash to make these roasted squash slices. Serve warm as a side dish, or at room temp as a snack with a spicy aioli dipping sauce.
Baked Delicata Squash with Lime Butter
My new favorite squash is Delicata, an heirloom squash happily being rediscovered. Look for them in the winter squash section of your grocery store. They're cream to pale yellow with green stripes, and their flesh is orange, slightly sweet and smooth but not stringy. My sister suggested the lime butter topping (my personal favorite), but a blend of maple syrup and butter is good, too. The squash usually aren't very big, so plan half a squash per person.
Grilled Delicata Squash
Delicata squash is actually named for its delicate, edible skin. Half-inch slices grill up quickly, and the lovely caramelization enhances the flavor.
Very simple, and very good: semicircles of delicata squash dressed with olive oil and fresh parsley and garlic. You can serve this hot from the oven or at room temperature.
Microwave Delicata Squash
Delicata squash can be cooked in the microwave in less than 10 minutes, and there's barely any prep because you don't need to peel it! Add it to a salad or grain bowl, or eat it as a side dish. Vary the dressing to suit whatever you are serving it with.
