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.

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 with Hot Honey

While I rarely cook with winter squash, I do make an exception for delicata squash because its flavor is milder and I don't have to peel it! If you haven't tried hot honey before, it's amazing on roasted vegetables and meats of all kinds.

Baked Delicata Squash with Lime Butter

Rating: Unrated
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.

Winter Squash Rolls

This recipe is always a real hit! Every time I make these I get asked for the recipe. People can't believe it when I tell them that they're made from winter squash. These delicious rolls taste best fresh out of the oven.

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.

Stuffed Delicata Squash

This delicious fall recipe combines the savory and sweet for a dish that warms the soul. I first made it after receiving some delicata squash from a friend's farm. I never knew squash could be so good!

Sweet Baked Delicata Squash

Rating: Unrated
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!

Creamy Delicata Squash Soup

Roasted squash lends a delicate sweetness to this creamy soup. Onions, vegetable broth, and roasted squash are cooked together with non-fat Greek yogurt and processed to a fine consistency for an incredibly rich-tasting soup. Chicken broth works fine for this, too.

This delicata squash recipe is simple, quick, healthier, and very filling, but if you cut it up for slices, it can be served as an appetizer. Use the sliced cherry tomatoes in the stuffing to make it even more juicy.
