Chili-Brown Sugar Delicata Squash with Pears

November/December 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (41 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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Loved this one. It will be a regular. I agree with the comments on the need for more bacon; For those with mushy pears, you may not have used a good variety. I'd advise asking your grocer which types hold up to baking better. "

wonderful taste, easy to make

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.

Sweet and Spicy Squash

Never having used Delicata Squash I can't imagine a better recipe. Easy to make and different side dish.

Delicious!

I used 4 slices of bacon and added pulled chicken to make it a main dish. It was wonderful!

Scrumptious

I served this as a salad over wilted spinach with a homemade mustard/tangerine juice/rice vinegar dressing. It was unbelievably good!
