Chili-Brown Sugar Delicata Squash with Pears

November/December 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4 (54 votes)

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.

Yummy!! I added an onion to the bacon. Agree with previous comment that chili powder & brown sugar are a great combination. Also liked how roasting improved the flavors of pears & squash.

I second the more bacon comment, would recommend at least 3 slices preferably 4 slices. I substituted maple syrup for the brown sugar. Instead of using two pears, I used one pear and a persimmon. If you have persimmons, you should really try adding one.

This dish has excellent flavor. I love the sweet and hot and salty combination. My squash and pears were a little mushy after cooking which left the texture a bit questionable. Next time I will try roasting with a hotter oven for less time.
