Chili-Brown Sugar Delicata Squash with Pears

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chili_squash_and_pears.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2010

Pears and delicata squash tossed with brown sugar, chili powder and bacon is a delectable combination. To make this vegetarian, omit the bacon and toss the squash and pears with the brown sugar and chili powder during the last 5 minutes of roasting.

4 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Cut squash in half lengthwise; scoop out the seeds. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices. Toss in a large bowl with pears, oil, salt and pepper. Spread on a large baking sheet.
  3. Roast the squash and pears until just tender, stirring once or twice, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  5. Discard all but 2 teaspoons fat from the pan. Over medium heat, stir in water, brown sugar and chili powder. Add the squash and pears; toss to coat. Crumble the bacon on top.
