Tasty, no fuss recipe for delicata squash I was looking for other ways to cook up some delicata squash that I had on hand when I came across this recipe. It makes a perfect side. It uses readily available ingredients and requires little prep time. I used about a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar instead of mustard because I was out of mustard, so will try it next time with the Dijon as called for. This seems to be a versatile recipe, I can see trying it with different herbs and spices. A curry might go well to complement an Indian meal. This is a new go-to recipe in our house! Pros: Quick and easy, taste good, healthy, family friendly Cons: None

After sampling delicata squash while on vacation, I was looking forward to preparing it at home. I was able to locate the squash at Sprouts and prepared it using this recipe. WOW!!!! It was fabulous. The flavor and texture of the squash is smooth and creamy which complements the caramelized onions and the maple syrup knocked it out to the park. Looking forward to making this again. Yum! Pros: NULL Cons: NULL

Yum! Love this. Never had a delicata before and was surprised and impressed that the skin was edible. Makes prep a whole lot easier. One night, hubby was making his famous stir fried rice for dinner, and I prepared this using five spice powder and a few sesame seeds instead of the Rosemary and maple (used the mustard) Pros: easy Cons: none

Seasoning (particularly mustard) overwhelmed the delicate Delicata. If I were to try this again, I'd lower the temperature to 375-¦ - 400-¦, cut the onion a bit thicker and perhaps substitute lemon juice & zest for the mustard. Pros: Relatively quick and easy Cons: Heat too high, mustard too strong a taste.

Good with the squash seeds in it! We put some of the seeds in with all the ingredients including broccoli, orange pepper, and ground turkey and it turned out great! Pros: Smell and texture. Cons: Nothing.
