Roasted Delicata with Cream and Cheese

Posted by Brette in General

DelicataSquash2Our CSA sent home a lot of delicata squash this fall and I’d never cooked it before. When confronted with a pile of five of them, I decided I’d better get serious about using them. This is an adaptation from a recipe in The Glorious Vegetables of Italy by Domenica Marchetti. It’s super simple and the best part about delicata is you can eat the peels, so it’s very easy to prepare.

This turns out brown and bubbly and oh so tender. It will look like you worked a lot harder than you did.
