On a low sugar diet, I put this over mixed greens for a hearty salad, substituting raw coconut nectar for the brown sugar, using a simple apple cider vinagrette and garnishing with roasted pumpkin seeds. It's delicious and a keeper, diet or not.
Chili-Brown Sugar Delicata Squash with Pears
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.

Tasted great but does every Delicata recipe have to use chili? Next time I'm trying Ginger or Cinnamon or both. My husband thinks that sounds better. I know it will be better for my GERD!
I used Turkey bacon, not much grease, and didn't need it.
This recipe yields a tasty dish with the right texture.
However, I rarely (if ever) use bacon, do not like handling it (also not too healthy...), so next time I'll probably add butter instead. Just to add my twist on it: some toasted walnuts don't hurt.
Never having used Delicata Squash I can't imagine a better recipe. Easy to make and different side dish.
I used 4 slices of bacon and added pulled chicken to make it a main dish. It was wonderful!
